Diversity Scholarship

The Linux Foundation’s diversity scholarship program provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities (including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQ+, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities) who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Linux Foundation events for financial reasons.

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Selection will be made by an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request. Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass.

Please note, travel expenses are not covered under this scholarship and are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. To apply for travel funding, please visit https://events.linuxfoundation.org/travel-request/request.

Eligibility
Applicants must be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group in the technology and/or open source communities including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQ+, women, persons of color and/or persons with disabilities; and be unable to attend without some financial assistance.

Applicants can be approved for up to 2 (two) scholarships per each calendar year.

How to Apply
To apply, please fill out the scholarship application. All application information will be kept confidential. Please allow two weeks for application review.

If you have any questions, please contact us at scholarships@linuxfoundation.org.
