Finally, after waiting a few months, they announced The Shubhra Kar Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) Scholarship 2022 on this month (June 2022). Alhamdulillah, i got selected as one of LiFT Training Scholarship recipients. 🌟
In case you don't know before, on 5 April 2022, I tried to apply for The Linux Foundation Training Scholarship which I posted here.
There are several questions when I applied to LiFT Scholarship :
- Tell us about how you've used Linux or other open-source software in your work environment and what the results have been. How will open-source training help demonstrate your level of expertise to peers and potential employers (limit 1000 characters)?
- For which training course are you seeking a scholarship? Have you enrolled in a Linux Foundation Training course before?
- Please describe your educational background. (limit 500 characters) *
- What has been your experience with using and/or developing open-source software? (limit 700 characters) *
- Why are you deserving of a LiFT Scholarship? (limit 700 characters) *
- Why is learning more about open source important to your future (limit 1000 characters)?
For the question: "Why is learning more about open source important to your future (limit 1000 characters)?",
and my answer is
A few days ago i joined "Building a Career Through Technology & Open Source Community" webinar (https://youtu.be/Z89Yid_MqDM), and its open my eyes that Open Source is really important about my future. Open Source can be a golden way to achieve my career goals. Like if i were software developer, i can help solving issues on open source repositories and commit push request to them, and if accepted, i will be marked as one of their contributor and it can be a "red carpet" to get better jobs in technology companies.
Thanks to Mas Giri to tell us that contributing to Open Source can be a way to improve existing skills, meet people with similar interests, grow our reputation, and can be the "red carpet" to getting better jobs.
Anyway, back to the main topic ✌
They sent me an email about LiFT Scholarship Recipient on 1 June 2022, next day I have to complete the acceptance form by uploading my photo as a follow-up, and today (23 June 2022) I get an Instructions email on how to redeem the course and certification.
