Since 2011, the Linux Foundation has awarded over 600 training scholarships worth millions of dollars. In 2020, we awarded 500 scholarships, our most ever by far. Scholarship recipients receive a Linux Foundation training course and certification exam at no cost. 2020 saw 1,155 applications across ten categories.
Unsurprisingly due to the popularity of the free Intro to Linux course, the most popular scholarship category continues to be Open Source Newbies, followed by SysAdmin SuperStars and Women in Open Source.
