Fellows are contributors from academia, industry, non-profits and think tanks. They are vital in developing the SEA:ME Curriculum and the learning and research ecosystem that we are building around mobility. They work with us on building, testing and revising the learning projects and their challenges. On mentoring students. And on exploring how software-driven mobility can enhance the lives of us all. 

Below are core fellows that have helped construct the first version of our tech curriculum. We will be adding a full library of fellows from various backgrounds shortly.
