Fedora Scholarship Encourages Students to Work with Open Source

Lora Bentley

Last week, I talked about open source internships as means to make one's way into an IT job. This week, Red Hat and the Fedora Project are going even beyond the internships. Market Wire reports they have set up the Fedora Scholarship Program to encourage current college students to use open source and participate in open source projects.

 

Ricky Zhou, the 2008 Fedora Scholarship winner, will attend Carnegie-Mellon University in the fall. In addition to money toward his tuition, Zhou will also receive travel and lodging expenses to attend the Fedora Users and Developers Conference for the year of the scholarship.

 

Organizers say scholarship applicants will be evaluated according to how long they have contributed to the Fedora Project, the quality of their contributions and references from Fedora community members, among other factors.
