Cephalocon

Scholarships

The Ceph Foundation’s Scholarship Fund is intended to enable open source developers and community members to attend when they would otherwise be unable 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. In order to maximize spending, scholarship 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 Cephalocon 2022 will be included. 

Note: If your scholarship application is approved, you will be required to show proof of attendance in order to be reimbursed. Recipients need to adhere to Continuous Delivery 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 Continuous Delivery Foundation will reimburse for incurred travel expenses within the allotted amount. Please Note: Attendance at 2022 in-person events requires proof of vaccination.

For questions, please contact travelfund@linuxfoundation.org.
