EuroPython 2016: Financial Aid Sponsorship

We are very grateful to the Python Software Foundation (PSF) as our financial aid sponsor. Together with the budget we allocated, this has allowed us to provide finance aid to people who otherwise would not have been able to attended the conference or give a talk.

We are glad to announce that funds devoted to financial aid have risen by 30% compared to 2015.
