TransTech x Linux Foundation Training & Certification Scholarship

June 17, 2021

TransTech will award 50 scholarships per quarter to our members, with the Linux Foundation Training & Certification providing each of the recipients with a voucher to register for any Linux Foundation eLearning course and certification exam at no charge, such as the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate, Certified Kubernetes Administrator, Open.js Node.js Certified Application Developer, and more!

Linux Foundation Training & Certification offers dozens of training courses and certification exams around open source technologies that serve as the infrastructure for the modern world. From Linux which powers all the world’s supercomputers and the vast majority of mobile phones and the internet itself, to Node.js which is one of the most popular frameworks for developing web applications, to Kubernetes which has become essential to anyone working with cloud systems, learning these technologies can open countless doors to lucrative career opportunities.

“We know how difficult it can be to get started in the technology field, especially coming from an underrepresented community where you don’t see many people like you front and center in technology roles,” said Linux Foundation SVP & GM of Training & Certification Clyde Seepersad. “We are excited to work with TransTech to lower the barrier to entry and help hundreds of individuals this year figure out where to start. We look forward to seeing where the scholarship recipients take their open source careers, and hope they will inspire more members of the LGBTQ community to consider entering the tech sector.”

Applications for these scholarships are now open:
