The django CMS open source community is growing, and after securing enough funding, we are pleased to announce the launch of the django CMS Fellowship Program


The django CMS Fellowship Program is an initiative to take django CMS to the next level. 2 years since the launch of the django CMS Association, we have finally been able to secure enough funding to take the next step. Under the Fellowship Program, a paid contractor will take on some of the administrative and community management tasks of the django CMS project to support its rapid development. 

The continued development of django CMS is central to the vision of the django CMS Association. The Fellowship Program builds the foundation for this. It is funded by donations and membership fees from the django CMS Association. 

The fellow participates in the project for a few months and earns community recognition for their efforts. 

What are the benefits of the django CMS Fellowship program for the community?

  • Regular and stable django CMS releases
  • Faster reviews of PR submitted by the community
  • Quicker issue management (bug fixing, monitoring)
  • Innovative product features and improvements

What are the benefits for the fellow?

  • Reputation in the Django community
