Scholarship program

Every year we strive to become a more diverse and inclusive conference. Technology isn't by itself sufficient to build a better world: we need different perspectives and points of view to build the right things. To that end, we are proud to announce our first Scholarship Program to ensure that anyone and everyone has a chance to become part of the unique Full Stack Fest experience.

We are extremely thankful to the companies and individuals who donate to our Scholarship Program. Thanks to their support, a lot more deserving people who couldn't attend otherwise will be able to join us and find the inspiration they need to go make the world a better place with technology.

Eligibility

Anyone from an underrepresented group in technology is encouraged to apply for a scholarship. This includes, but is not limited to: people of color, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, women and non-binary people, and those facing economic or social hardships.

Requirements

  • Must agree to follow our →Code of conduct←
  • Must be 18 years old or over
  • Must be able to attend the full Full Stack Fest 2019 schedule

What's included

All scholarship awardees will be provided with a full access ticket to the entire conference, including all talks, meals and social events.

Travel and accommodation reimbursement may be available, depending on our scholarship budget, and will be awarded on a case-by-case basis.

Application process

All applications will fill out an on-line scholarship application form. In this form, aside from basic contact information, you will have a chance to tell us your story in a free-form text area.

Once the scholarship application window closes, our scholarship selection committee will review all of the submitted applications, from which they'll choose the awardees, based on our eligibility criteria and the details of each applicant's story.

We value your time, and we understand that planning several days away from work and/or family can be stressful. We will notify all applicants of the outcome of their application as soon as our selection committee has finished. In the event that a scholarship awardee is unable to accept, the unfulfilled scholarship will be offered to the next eligible applicant, time permitting.
