THE RED Hat Scholarships-Open Source Challenge is
conducted jointly with the Kanwal Rekhi School of
Information Technology, IIT-Bombay.

The scholarships are designed to encourage young
talent and spread the open source philosophy that has
created world class software such as Linux and Apache.
They are focused on solving practical, real-life
problems that are of importance to Linux users
worldwide.

The Open Source Challenge is an educational initiative
designed to encourage budding software developers.
Students from engineering colleges across India can
participate. Scholarships worth Rs. 10 lakhs will be
distributed.

To participate in the programme, students will have to
develop a piece of high quality open source software.
The projects are expected to have contribution similar
to that of a typical final year B.E./B.Tech project.

Group projects are admissible provided a group does
not consist of more than four students, each student
of the group has identifiable contributions, and the
total visible effort is commensurate with the number
of students in the group.

In addition, deserving participants will be offered
national and international internships with Red Hat.
