“I truly believe in the mission of free open source software and am honored to be a recipient of the HPE Helion OpenStack Scholarship for women.”




We believe that by bringing in additional diversified voices, we will grow a stronger community, and in the end the community wins! The first wave of the program was successful not only because of the financial aspects of the scholarship, but more importantly, because of the mentorship element. Pairing each student one on one with strong technical and community-oriented open source role models made the difference between the students simply finishing their projects and actively engaging in the community, which provides unlimited future opportunities.


"This unique program highlights HPE's committment to diversifying the open source community, and we are thrilled to keep it going,"  said Mark Interrante, SVP Engineering, HPE Cloud. "Congratulations to these four outstanding candidates."


Stay tuned for a series of podcasts in the near future, highlighting the work in progress of these amazing women. You will learn more about their contributions and plans for open source software going foward.
