We are thrilled to announce the first part of a new program at Tweag: the Tweag Open Source Fellowship. Open Source Fellows get financial support and mentorship from Tweag I/O to bring their own ideas into practice for the benefit of the open source community.
The contribution needn’t just be code: we’re also open to supporting research, tutorials, documentation, design specifications, etc. We also provide mentorship during the Fellowship, which can take place at any 12-week-long mutually convenient time during the year. Fellowships will be selected in a competitive review twice a year, with a first deadline coming up on March 30th. Further details — and how to apply — can be found here.
This Fellowship naturally evolved out of an experience that we made again and again at Tweag: Great ideas come from passionate individuals — independent of their professional position or financial backing. We want to listen, and accelerate such ideas into something that is useable and openly available.
Stay tuned for the second part.
