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.
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 complete our Travel Fund Request form.
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. Applicants can be approved for up to 2 (two) scholarships per each calendar year.
The application for 2019 events will open Spring 2019.
The Linux Foundation recommends that scholarship applicants check with the event host country’s visa and application requirements prior to application submission.
