The Dan Kohn Scholarship Fund exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. Cloud Native Computing Foundation is pleased to offer three types of scholarships; Diversity, Need-Based, and Maintainer Scholarships. Individuals who apply should be active members of the open source community who are unable to attend for financial reasons and are unable to receive funding from their companies.

Diversity Scholarships

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.

Need-based Scholarships

Need-based scholarships are for members of the community who may be unable to attend due to lack of funding, and do not work for a company that has the ability to fund your attendance. 

Maintainer Scholarships

Applicants should be active CNCF project maintainers 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 reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request.

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass to attend this event.
