Scholarships

The Dan Kohn Scholarship Fund exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. Cloud Native Computing Foundation is pleased to offer two types of scholarships; Diversity Scholarships & 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 receive funding from their companies.

Diversity Scholarships

Diversity scholarships place an emphasis on funding applicants who are from historically underrepresented or untapped groups and/or those of lower socioeconomic status. 

Need-based Scholarships

Need-based scholarships are for members of the community who may be unable to attend due to lack of funding, and do not work for a company that has the ability to fund your attendance. 

The Dan Kohn Registration Scholarship is defined as registration fund assistance only. Should you need Travel Funding, please review the next section.

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. 

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. Please Note: Attendance at 2022 in-person events requires proof of vaccination.

travel funding

The Dan Kohn Travel Fund exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. 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.

Fill out the form using the button below to have your funding request considered. In order to maximize spending, 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.

A standard in-person ticket for the ArgoCon will be included.

Receipt of Travel Funding does not 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 travel fund allotted is null and void. Should the recipient not be able to travel due to COVID-19 and travel has already been booked, the recipient will need to work with airlines and hotels to receive a refund. If a refund is not a possibility, The Linux Foundation will reimburse for incurred travel expenses within the allotted amount. Please Note: Attendance at 2022 in-person events requires proof of vaccination.
