Subject: Re: [Ambassadors] Heads up students. Time for Fedora Scholarship.
It can certainly be done if someone steps up to do it. ;) If
you'd like to remix or create any advertising materials for the scholarship
), please do!
This is definitely a great opportunity for students entering in the fall of 2010! :)
The deadline is February 19, 2010.
was intended to be an announcement to inform Fedora Planet readers about it, but I know
there's a lot more that could be done; I'll be working on a press release after
the weekend, but other materials would be more than welcome - just use the details on the
main Scholarship wiki page as a source of information.

Going to college next year? Time to apply for the Fedora Scholarship!
December 22, 2009 � 6:33 am
Are you a Fedora contributor? Are you starting college in the fall of 2010, or know a
Fedora contributor who will be? (This likely means you/they are a high school senior, but
thanks to Felix Kaechele, recent secondary school graduates currently finishing their
gap/military/service years are now also eligible to apply!)
If so, you should apply (or tell them to apply) for the Fedora Scholarship. The Fedora
Scholarship program recognizes one high school senior per year for contributions to the
Fedora Project and free software/content in general, which gives you $2,000 USD plus an
automatic full travel/housing sponsorship to attend the FUDCon closest to you for each of
the 4 years of your college or university education.
The application process is entirely online, and basically involves you sending us an email
with a single attachment. That’s it. It’s not that bad, really. I mean, you’re probably in
the middle of college applications now � trust me, compared to those, this application is
a breeze. You should read the legal jargon here to check all the fine print before you
start, but once you start, it mostly boils down to:
1. Tell us who you are and why you should get the scholarship.
2. Okay, now do it again in resume format.
3. Great. Now tell us the names of a couple folks in Fedora that you’ve worked with so
we can get some comments from them.
Seriously, that’s it. The deadline is February 19, 2010. Go spread the word, and get those
Thank you for this post. :)
Please have a good day! :~)
