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.
