Web Rebels is a conference organised by and for the community, and it's important to us that all members of the community should be included, also those who would normally be unable to attend for financial reasons. We're very happy to be able to offer The Web Rebels Scholarship Programme to offer financial aid to people from underrepresented groups wanting to attend the conference.
The Scholarship program would not be possible without the help of our Scholarship sponsors:
Companies can contribute by buying the Scholarship Ticket package.
Scholarships are primarily intended to assist people from groups traditionally underrepresented in the local developer community, including women, people of non-Scandinavian descent and people with disabilities. However, we wouldn't presume to be able to provide a complete list of underrepresented groups, so all applications will be considered. Eligibility ultimately depends on the discretion of the selection committee.
All applications will be reviewed by the selection committee, and will be accepted at their discretion, although selection will primarily favour diversity concerns and financial need. All information provided to the committee will be kept strictly confidential.
Selected applicants will receive a fully paid ticket for the conference, and may also apply for travel and lodging assistance, although our ability to offer this will be more limited.
The Scholarships application period is over and all applicants will be notified via email by March 27th. If your application is accepted, you will receive your conference registration details and other relevant information along with the notification.
If you have further questions about the Scholarship Programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
