UPDATE : Please note – applications have now closed.
Diversity in tech is something I care deeply about, and although the problem won’t be solved overnight, this small gesture is a step in the right direction. Although this may not be relevant to you personally, you can still play an important part by passing this on help find others who may benefit from the scholarships.
What are the scholarships?
Scholarships are available for anyone in an under-represented group in tech. This includes (but is not limited to): people of colour, LGBTQIA+ people, women and disabled people.
I have 2 scholarships places which include the cost of the two day workshop, and up to £300 (per scholarship) towards the cost of travel and accommodation.
How to apply
Please answer the following questions and email me. You don’t have to explain your personal situation (but you can of course, if you want to).
Who are you?
Where would you be travelling from (airport or city)?
What do you do?
Why should you get a scholarship?
Please note that your email will be treated with the utmost privacy, and we will not publicly announce who the diversity scholarships go to (though you’re welcome to say so yourself).
Deadline for applications: Friday 20th November, 2015.
I’ve taken most of the copy from Remy, who in turn was inspired by SassConf and OTSConf.
Again, if this doesn’t apply to you, please please can you pass on the message and reach out to anyone you know that might benefit from one of these scholarship places.
