Kathi Fletcher

Building digital knowledge pathways


So, what's the big idea?

Kathi identified the need for greater technical interoperability between open educational resource (OER) platforms to build a bridge between the legal rights and practical use of the resources. Without it, OERs grant users legal access, but not technical access, effectively denying them the right to remix and reuse the resources outside of a specific platform.

Kathi Fletcher's flash grant nominations

Twice a year we award a number of small grants to a collection of social change agents, no strings attached, in support of their work. We call these Flash Grants and recipients are selected based on nominations from our Fellows. Each award is worth $5,000.

Spend breakdown

At the heart of our co-investment fellowship model is the principle that Fellows continue to invest in their own ideas. The Foundation amplifies the Fellow’s investment by matching it at least tenfold, along with covering the cost of their time for the year.

The figures you see here do not reflect each Fellow’s fellowship year funding, but rather the funds unlocked within our financial year, as the fellowship years start either March or September and Fellows are not required to spend the available funds proportionately throughout the year.
