the UN to develop new features and software products? Help improve
education in Brazil?

We are kicking off the *CS+Social Good Summer Fellowship*! Through the
fellowship, students will receive funding and support to design their own
summer experience working with an organization to use tech to address
social issues, abroad or in the US.
