OpenJS Foundation Opens New Node.js Certification and Training Scholarship

Today, the OpenJS Foundation is launching a new scholarship fund to increase access to the OpenJS and Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) Node.js training and certification and help expand diversity in technology. 

The scholarships are being sponsored by the OpenJS Foundation Cross Project Council Community Fund, who will award 20 LiFT Scholarships for Node.js training and certification for deserving individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford it. The OpenJS Foundation is committed to bringing more talent into the open source JavaScript community, which involves reaching people who have traditionally been underrepresented in open source.  

The application is open now through October 15, 2021. Interested applicants are encouraged to complete the application.
