CNCF’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 CNCF events for financial reasons.
A few scholarships will be provided and recipients will receive up to $1,500 USD to reimburse actual travel expenses. The $1,500 USD can be used for the following: coach airfare, hotel (up to two nights), and/or ground transportation. Recipients will also receive complimentary registration for ServiceMeshCon.
Please note: You MUST register for KubeCon+CloudNativeCon in order to attend / participate / redeem your complimentary registration for the pre-conference co-located event that is ServiceMeshCon. KubeCon+CloudNativeCon registration is separate and at your own expense.
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.
