Student Research Project Application

The Red Hat Collaboratory is able to support students and/or student groups on projects that aligns with the Collaboratory’s areas of focus including cloud testing & operations, artificial intelligence, security & privacy, hardware & software, and distributed systems. The effort may be associated with an existing project, or it may be new independent work. The mission is to provide funding for BU students to pursue research and experiential learning opportunities. 

Those interested in submitting a proposal are strongly encouraged to identify a BU Researcher or Red Hat Engineer willing to mentor the project prior to submitting a proposal. Browse active Collaboratory projects and faculty by clicking here, or check out active Red Hat Research projects by clicking here.

Submit a new or existing project for funding by completing the form below. If the student is part of a group collaboration, each member of the collaboration should complete an individual application (that will be reviewed separately) with a reference to the other students in the group. We continue to welcome submissions, although the review process has already started.
