We’re happy to announce that we are now accepting applications for travel grants.
Our default travel grant includes a complimentary admission to the main conference, and four nights in the conference hotel. Alternatively, applicants may request funds just for registration waiver, or for transportation instead of lodging. In exceptional cases, we may award both lodging and travel funds.
Because we believe that a diverse community is a stronger community, we have set aside 50% of our funds for women and minorities — communities that have traditionally been under-represented in the open source community.
Because our funds are limited, we’re also asking other attendees to help us be more inclusive. When you register for the conference, please donate to our travel grant pool. Your donation can help us achieve our goal of being the most inclusive, most diverse FOSS4G yet. If everyone donated just $20 dollars, we could easily fund 20 additional attendees.
