Creative Commons Welcomes Our 2020 CC Certificate Scholarship Recipients!

Open Education

The CC Certificate aims to increase our global community’s expertise in open licensing and awareness of our shared, digital commons.  Our first goal is to train at least one person interested in open licensing in every country and territory, around the world. So far, we have CC Certificate graduates from 44 countries and counting!

One way to bring the CC Certificate to more people is through the Certificate scholarship program, which launched with 18 scholarships in 2019. I’m pleased to announce we’ve awarded 28 scholarships in 2020 to our CC Global Network members who are passionate about developing their open licensing expertise and contributing to our vibrant global community. 

While we prioritize offering scholarships to CC Global Network members, anyone is welcome to join the network (it’s free).

This year, scholarship recipients hail from 25 countries: Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Benin, Brazil, Chile, Finland, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, Nigeria, Portugal, Rwanda, Slovenia, South Africa, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
