Fb Open Supply introduces the MLH Fellowship Class of Spring 2021

Facebook Open Source continues to partner with GitHub and Major League Hacking (MLH) in 2021 as part of the MLH Fellowship program: a 12-week remote scholarship designed to host, mentor, and support developers who hack open source projects.

For Facebook, investing in open source is a way to empower developers as well as wider communities of individuals and businesses. To this end, we are excited to support the MLH Fellowship global program, which will help us invest in the next generation of open source developers.

The MLH Fellows working on Facebook Open Source Technologies evolve along with key contributors and develop real solutions within the projects. The Fellows work closely with Facebook engineers to influence the technologies on which Facebook is based.

We are happy to introduce you to the 11 MLH Fellows we are working with this year!
