Scholarships

The Linux Foundation’s Registration Scholarship program exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Linux Foundation events in two categories:

Diversity Scholarships

Applicants must be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group in the technology and/or open source communities who are unable to attend without some financial assistance. Including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQIA+, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities. 

Need-based Scholarships

Individuals who apply should be active members of the open source community who are unable to attend for financial reasons and are unable to get funding from their companies.

Registration Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass. Registration Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Selection will be made by an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request. 

Applicants can be approved for up to 2 (two) Registration Scholarships per calendar year.

Please note: Travel expenses are not covered under this Registration Scholarship. If you require travel funding in order to attend this event, please fill out the Travel Fund Request Form prior to submitting this Registration Scholarship application.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide Travel Funding for all requests received. If you require Travel Funding in order to attend this event, we ask that you wait for confirmation that your request has been approved before completing the Registration Scholarship request.

travel funding

The Linux Foundation’s Travel Fund is intended to enable open source developers and community members to attend events that they would otherwise be unable to attend due to a lack of funding. We place an emphasis on funding applicants who are from historically underrepresented or untapped groups and/or those of lower socioeconomic status. If you work for a company that has the ability to fund your travel, we ask that you not apply, to save funds for those that need it.

Please fill out the form below to have your funding request considered. We receive about a thousand requests for funding each year. In order to maximize spend, travel fund assistance may only be used for:

  • Coach airfare tickets
  • Accommodation for the dates of the event plus one night prior to the event start date
  • Ground transportation to/from the airport

Funds may not be used for miscellaneous travel expenses including food, visa costs, non-airport transportation, baggage fees, etc.

The Linux Foundation is trying to use funds to assist as many people as possible. As such:

  • We are often unable to fund one person across multiple events in a year
  • Lower cost travel funding requests are more likely to get approved
  • We typically do not fund the same person two years in a row
  • Decisions are final, and reapplying for the same event after receiving a denial does not increase your chances of getting funded

Note: If your travel fund application is approved, you will be required to show proof of attendance in order to be reimbursed.

For questions, please contact travelfund@linuxfoundation.org.
