The Dan Kohn Scholarship Fund exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend in two categories:
Applicants must be from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups 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.
Applicants should be active community members who are not being assisted or sponsored by a company or organization, and are unable to attend for financial reasons.
Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Scholarships are NOT transferable to another person, or any other event. Selection will be made by an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request. Application information will be kept confidential.
cdCon + GitOpsCon is an in-person event, taking place in Vancouver, Canada.
Scholarship recipients will receive complimentary registration to attend cdCon + GitOpsCon 2023 in Vancouver, Canada, and up to a max of $1,500 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 three 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 Health & Safety rules and regulations or the scholarship is null and void.
