Fellowship program

Creating positive impact on the development and maintenance of django CMS

The django CMS Fellowshop program is a project where paid contractors take on some of the administrative and community management tasks of the django CMS project to support the rapid development of django CMS itself.

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.
