LUFOSS - Lund University Fund for Open Source Software

Lund University, Faculty of engineering

Purpose

Open Source Software (OSS) is not only changing our society, but a great way to learn about software development and to get a track record as a junior developer. LUFOSS gives scholarships to persons that contribute to OSS projects with significant utility and impact. Nominees can be students, doctoral candidates, and software developers in their early careers.

Criteria

  • Utility. The utility of the OSS contribution is assessed in relation to the potential future benefit to end users, other OSS projects, businesses and society.
  • Impact. The impact is assessed in relation to existing proof of, e.g., downloads, usage and recognition by end users, other OSS projects, businesses and society.
  • Öresund Connection. Nominees should have a connection to the Öresund area.
