The Apereo Fellows program seeks to foster community leadership and contributions by recognizing and supporting active contributors. This year five (5) Fellows will be chosen by the selection committee and each Fellow will receive a modest stipend.
I encourage all members of the Apereo Community to consider engaging in the nomination process. Feel free to nominate more than one candidate and do not hesitate to nominate yourself if you meet the eligibility requirements outlined below.
Also I think it important to emphasize that the program recognizes contributors at the individual project level as well as those who contribute more generally to Apereo Foundation initiatives. If you or your colleagues work on projects like Bedework, CAS, Karuta, OAE, Opencast, Sakai, Student Success Plan, UniTime, uPortal, Xerte or any of the projects under incubation you are helping advance the mission of the Apereo Foundation. In short, if you contribute to a project you contribute to Apereo.
