The Ada Lovelace Fellowship
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 marginalized people in open technology and culture to actively participate and foster a more diverse community within open source.
For the seventh 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.
Please submit your application here.
The deadline to apply for the fellowship is December 17th at 11 PM EDT
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, non binary, trans, LGBTQA+, black, indigenous, people of color and disabled people 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 are just on the edge of what is possible, Let’s be the change!
