The Ada Lovelace Fellowship

The 2021 Summit will be held virtually, so the Ada Lovelace Fellowship will not be offering travel support. However, we will still be recognizing fellows with a fully sponsored ticket to the virtual summit.

Please fill out this form by March 19th to apply as an Ada Lovelace Fellow.

The Ada Lovelace Fellowship was founded in 2013 prior to the annual Open Hardware Summit at MIT by Summit Chair Addie Wagenknecht and OSHWA Director Alicia Gibb as a way to encourage women,  LGTBQ+ and/or other minorities in open technology and culture to actively participate and foster a more diverse community within open source.

We look forward to the next time we can hold an in-person gathering for the Open Hardware Summit, at which point we will resume the travel support offered by the Ada Lovelace Fellowship. By offering the annual travel and summit conference assistance to community members, the Open Source Hardware Association hopes we as a community can encourage more women, LGBTQA+ and/or people of color to participate in open source. We have many strong leaders and speakers in our field and we personally want to continue the trend upward.
