Yoav Shapira, SDM ’05, has been named the first scholarship recipient from the Open Source for Tomorrow Program, sponsored by Covalent Technologies and the Apache Software Foundation. The scholarship fund supports student members of the ASF and encourages them to continue making contributions to the ASF and the Open Source community while in school. Shapira was recently asked to join the distinguished list of ASF members in recognition of his significant contributions to the Apache Tomcat project.

"We have known Yoav, his high caliber of work, and his ASF contributions for many years now," commented Greg Stein, Chairman of the ASF. Prior to MIT Sloan, Shapira earned his Bachelor of Science degree and his first Masters of Science degree in Computer Science Engineering from Boston University, and he has worked at Deloitte, Millennium, and as an independent consultant in biotechnology and enterprise software.
