Two new programs that are meant to train the next generation of Linux developers have been announced by the Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux. These are the new Linux Training Scholarship Program and Linux Learner’s Student Day.

As part of the new Linux Training Scholarship Program, the Linux Foundation will present computer science students and Linux developers with 5 scholarships. Not just any students or developers will be selected though. The Linux Foundation will select 5 students and developers who cannot attend Linux Foundation training courses but despite this fact show incredible promise in helping to shape the future of Linux.

A scholarship is worth around $1,000, money that covers the expenses for one course from The Linux Foundation’s course schedule in Linux Development. Those interested in getting a scholarship should complete an online form and submit it by the 12th of Julym 11:55PM. The Linux Foundation will take a look at all the submissions and notify the winners late July or early August. The notifications will be sent out in time for LinuxCon, which will take place on August 17th in Vancouver.

Speaking of which, the Linux Foundation also announced that it will co-host a student-focused day at LinuxCon with Oregon State University’s Open Source Lab (OSUOSL) – Linux Learner’s Student Day. The event will take place on the 16th of August (one day before that start of LinuxCon) at the Hyatt Regency and will include sessions on Linux basics, introduction to Python and embedded systems, and other sessions students will find interesting.

Students who register for LinuxCon can do so for a discounted student rate of $100. The students who register for LinuxCon can attend Linux Learner’s Student Day for free. Transportation on the “LinuxCon or Bust” bus is included. The bus leaves from Corvallis on Monday morning, August 15, and returns Saturday, August 20.
