Ray Summit

Scholarships

Ray Summit’s scholarship program exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend events in two categories:

  • Diversity scholarships for traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized persons
  • Need-based scholarships for community members who lack the funds to purchase their own ticket

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass to attend Ray Summit. 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.

Eligibility Requirements

Diversity Scholarship: Applicants must be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group in the technology and/or open source communities including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBT, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities who are unable to attend without some financial assistance.

Need-Based Scholarship: 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.

Review Period

When applying, please allow two weeks for application review.
