We have reached the limit of complimentary passes offered for this program.

The Dan Kohn Scholarship application is now closed. However, CNCF is supporting the community in the following ways:

Individual ticket pricing is available for anyone who is currently not working for a company, works for a non-profit or is attending in person at their own expense (i.e. not funded by a company).

CNCF is offering up to 50 complimentary KubeCon + CloudNativeCon tickets* to support those affected by recent job loss or travel budget freezes. These tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to those in need.

*Offer Details:
  • KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Only ticket
  • One request/ticket per person in need
  • First come, first served up to the 50 ticket limit
  • Email must include “Job Loss or Budget Freeze Ticket Offer” in the subject line, and provide your first and last name plus email address you will use to register and details surrounding your need.

The Dan Kohn Scholarship Fund exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend in three categories:


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.


Applicants should be active community members who are not being assisted or sponsored by a company or organization, and are unable to attend for financial reasons.


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 an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request. Application information will be kept confidential.

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary All Access pass to attend KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Paris, France.
Travel funding scholarship recipients may receive up to a max of $2,500 USD to reimburse actual travel expenses. Please note that reimbursements are made after the event, and the stipend may only be used for the following: coach train, bus or airfare, hotel / accommodations (up to five nights), and transportation to and from the airport/train/bus station.
