Diversity & Need Based Registration Scholarships

The Linux Foundation’s Registration Scholarship program exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Linux Foundation events in two categories:

Diversity Registration Scholarships

Eligibility Requirements: Applicants must be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group 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 Registration Scholarships

Eligibility Requirements: Individuals who apply should be active members of the open source community who are unable to attend for financial reasons and are unable to get funding from their companies.

Registration Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass. Registration 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. 

Receipt of a scholarship does not, on its own, guarantee entry to the event. Recipients need to adhere to The Linux Foundation COVID-19 rules and regulations. If the recipient does not meet Covid-19 requirements for the event, the scholarship is null and void. Please Note: Attendance at 2021 in-person events requires proof of vaccination.

Applicants can be approved for up to 2 (two) Registration Scholarships per calendar year.
