The Eclipse Foundation recently announced a new initiative to grow and support open source projects, and to initiate an outreach program directed at  new developers in communities all over the world. As part of this initiative, and in conjunction with hosting and operating Devoxx US, we are proud to introduce this Bursary Program.
