Applications for the Ada Lovelace Fellowship are being accepted until April 30 2018! The Fellowship is intended to encourage more women, LGBTA+ and/or people of color to participate in open source.

The 2018 Open Source Hardware Summit will be held September 27th 2018 at MIT

Via oshwa.org:

The Ada Lovelace Fellowship was founded in 2013 prior to the annual Open Hardware Summit at MIT by Summit Chair Addie Wagenknecht and OSHWA Director Alicia Gibb as a way to encourage women, LGTBA+ and/or other minorities in open technology and culture to actively participate and foster a more diverse community within open source.

For the sixth year, we are excited to offer up to ten Open Hardware Fellowships to members of the community which includes a $500 travel stipend and entrance to the Open Hardware Summit.

By offering the annual travel and summit conference assistance to community members, the Open Source Hardware Association hopes we as a community can encourage more women, LGBTA+ and/or people of color to participate in open source. We have many strong leaders and speakers in our field and we personally want to continue the trend upward.

This is a crucial time in open source where we have the opportunity to shape the future of the whole field together. We invite you to contact us about sponsoring. We are just on the edge of what is possible, Let’s be the change!
