LUFOSS - Lund University Fund for Open Source Software

Lund University, Faculty of engineering


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.


  • 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.
