In 2008, Univention decided to create an annual prize to encourage students from a wide range of backgrounds to investigate a variety of aspects of open source software. Since then, submissions have been received from students of information technology, the humanities and social sciences.
“We are delighted to open up entries to the Univention Graduate Prize competition and we celebrate young programmers from around the world whose talent advances the development of open source software,”said Peter Ganten, CEO of Univention.
The winner of the Univention Graduate Prize receives $ 2,500 in prize money, second place receives $ 1,250 and third place wins $ 750. The prize winners are selected by an independent jury comprised of renowned open source experts.
Masters, and Bachelor graduates can submit university dissertations via e-mail to absolventenpreis(at)univention.de until March 22, 2015.
