Universities

From Teaching Open Source

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a first pass at trying to keep a portfolio of the university activities that are happening around Teaching Open Source, with data and valuable statistics for each university. Right now, it's a portfolio of grants that Red Hat has given educational institutions to pursue activities related to Teaching Open Source, and we're using this as background data to figure out our grant process.

Schools listed in alphabetical order.

  • FY2010: Secured $20k of matching funding from Canadian government for Center for the Development of Open Technology (CDOT).
  • FY2009: CDOT begins. ($50k in startup funds from Red Hat) where did the rest of the funding come from? I'm guessing Seneca...
