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 support and encourage women and female identifying people in open technology and culture to actively participate and foster a more diverse community within open source.
For the third year, the Summit team is excited to offer up to ten Open Hardware Fellowships to female identifying members of the community which include a $500 travel stipend and a lunch or dinner ‘date’ with select speakers and chairs of the Open Hardware Summit.
By offering the annual travel assistance, the Open Source Hardware Association hopes we as a community can encourage more women to participate in future years of the Open Hardware Summit. We have many strong women 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 the scholarships. We are just on the edge of what is possible, Let’s be the change!
Addie Wagenknecht, Alicia Gibb and all the women of OSHWA
