"The Fedora Scholarship is awarded to one student each year to assist with the recipient's college or university education. Now entering its fifth year, the Fedora Scholarship reflects the Fedora Project's efforts to inspire college students to use and contribute to open source software.

"The Fedora Scholarship recognizes young talent in the pursuit of innovation. We hope to encourage and foster future technologists to openly develop and contribute technology," said Jared Smith, employee and Fedora Project Leader at Red Hat. "The four previous Fedora Scholarship recipients are extremely active in open source communities while working toward their degrees. We believe that open source is the right way for technology to be developed because the best ideas win, and we are excited for the ideas our next-generation technologists are sure to bring."
