Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) Scholarships are back! Since 2011, The Linux Foundation has awarded over 100 scholarships for more than $220,000 in training and certification to deserving individuals around the world who would otherwise be unable to afford it. This is part of our mission to grow the open source community by lowering the barrier to entry and making quality training options accessible to those who want them.
This year we are stepping up even further by offering up to 500 scholarships! Applications are being accepted through April 30 in 10 different categories:
- Open Source Newbies
- Women in Open Source
- Software Developer Do-Gooder
- SysAdmin Super Star
- Blockchain Blockbuster
- Cloud Captain
- Linux Kernel Guru
- Networking Notable
- Web Development Wiz
Whether you are just starting in your open source career, or you are a veteran developer or sysadmin who is looking to gain new skills, if you feel you can benefit from training and/or certification but cannot afford it, you should apply.
Recipients will receive a Linux Foundation training course and certification exam. All our certification exams, and most training courses, are offered remotely, meaning they can be completed from anywhere.
Winners will be announced at Open Source Summit North America this June in Austin, TX (you do not need to be present to receive a scholarship).
