From Baylor University to Red Hat Czech: Broadening horizons in research through a remote internship experience
The project was initiated in 2019 with the goal to provide U.S. students with a unique summer research experience through project collaboration with outstanding partners in the Czech Republic. Even though the year 2020 was impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, we managed to transform the activities into an online internship.
This summer, Red Hat sponsored the Leadership Academy, a program launched by the University of Massachusetts Amherst, led by equity and inclusion expert Nilanjana Buju Dasgupta.
”Red Hat has taught me what it meant to be open source. At Red Hat we contribute more than just business objectives — even as an intern I felt like I was able to contribute to open source projects and a common knowledge base”
”My favorite part of the Red Hat internship is the network of people I get to work and collaborate with. I get hands-on experience with new technologies and the opportunity to increase my technical skills. But more importantly, with the weekly tech talks, conferences like DevConf, the networking events, and the one on ones, I get a pretty incredible support system of mentors and peers guiding me through.”
“I felt welcome since the first day at Red Hat. Even as an intern I am able to present my ideas and opinions to project leaders or managers. The chance to take part in worldwide projects and connect with people around the globe is one of the benefits of Red Hat. Friendly environment encourages me to never be afraid to ask for advice. My team believes in me and provides me the space to grow and take more challenges.”
