The selection will be purely based on the evaluation criteria of each screening task.

How to Participate?

Students who are selected for this Fellowship can be from any college, pursuing any degree, and at any stage of their graduation/ post-graduation. The only criterion for selection is the successful completion of a useful project. Students desirous of getting selected for this Fellowship have to learn Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) and complete some screening tasks. These tasks can involve programming/ scientific computing/ conducting awareness workshops/ collecting data that will be of use to the community. These screening tasks are not very complicated and can be done over a period of two weeks.
