We are happy to announce the start of our financial aid program for this year’s EuroPython.
As part of our commitment to the Python community, we are pleased to announce that we offer special grants for people in need of a financial aid to attend EuroPython.
Financial Aid Sponsor for EuroPython 2019:
The EuroPython Society (EPS) is sponsoring financial aid with 15,000 EUR this year.
We offer financial aid conference grants in these 2 categories:
- Free ticket. Get a standard ticket for the conference for free (including access to conference days (Wed-Fri), Beginners’ Day workshop and sprints.). Note: training passes are NOT included in the free conference ticket.
- Travel / Accommodation. We will cover the travel costs pro rata, depending on what you are applying for. You can get partial refund for the accommodation.
EuroPython is a wonderful place to meet and share your experience with other Python developers from Europe and all around the world. Our goal is support people which want to make Python community better: conference speakers and tutorial presenters, active people from small Python communities and open source contributors.
Our grants are open to all people in need of financial aid. We will specifically take into account the following criteria in the selection process:
- Contributors: potential speakers/trainers of EuroPython (people who submitted a proposal) and all who contribute to EuroPython and/or Python community projects.
- Economic factors: we want everybody to have a chance to come to EuroPython, regardless of economic situation or income level.
- Diversity: we seek the most diverse and inclusive event possible.
