The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc. sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration, today announced the opening of the 2011 Fedora Scholarship program, recognizing college and university-bound students across the globe for their contributions to free software and the Fedora Project. The Fedora Scholarship is awarded to one high school senior each year to assist with the recipient’s college or university education. This will mark the fourth year of this annual scholarship program as the Fedora Project continues to encourage young students to use and contribute to open source software.
“This is a scholarship that recognizes young talent in the pursuit of innovation. We hope to encourage and foster future technologists to develop and contribute technology openly,” said Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader at Red Hat. “The three previous Fedora Scholarship recipients are very active in open source communities while working toward their degrees. Open source is the right way for technology to be developed, the best ideas win. We are excited for the ideas the next generation of technologists will bring.”News, OPEN SOURCE
