This event has passed. Please visit the upcoming Cephalocon.




Cephalocon’s scholarship program exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Ceph 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.

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration to attend Cephalocon 2023 in Amsterdam, and up to a maximum of $2,500 USD to reimburse actual travel expenses. Please note that reimbursements are made after the event, and the stipend may only be used for the following: coach airfare, hotel / accommodations (up to four nights), transportation to and from the airport, and visa application fee.

Receipt of a scholarship does not, on its own, guarantee entry to the event. Recipients need to adhere to The Linux Foundation COVID-19 rules and regulations. If the recipient does not meet COVID-19 requirements for the event, the scholarship is null and void.
