Diversity Scholarship

The Linux Foundation’s diversity scholarship program provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities (including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQ+, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities) who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Linux Foundation events for financial reasons.

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. Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass.

Please note, travel expenses are not covered under this scholarship and are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. To apply for travel funding, please visit https://events.linuxfoundation.org/travel-request/
