Incoming freshman Ricky Zhou of Carnegie-Mellon University (go Tartans)  is the first winner of a Fedora Scholarship, funded by Red Hat.

Zhou is an active member of the Red Hat Fedora community, working on the group's web site and infrastructure. He has also worked on localizing the project Web site.

In addition to getting money for college Zhou wins a trip to the project's annual development conference, FUDcon.

There is a FUDcon scheduled for the Czech Republic next month. I suspect RedHat is actually sending him to the December conference in Boston.

The scholarship project is a win-win-win. You raise the profile of major open source projects, you honor contributors when they're approaching career decisions, and you win scads of free publicity.
