DrupalCon Portland 2024 Offers Scholarships and Community Grants
The Drupal Association has launched an initiative to offer needs-based scholarships to attendees belonging to historically oppressed communities for the upcoming DrupalCon Portland 2024. The scholarships aim to support individuals facing financial or economic hardship and who identify as cisgender women, transgender/non-binary people, intersex people, people of color, immigrants/refugees, or disabled individuals.
Recipients of the scholarships will receive a one-year membership to the Drupal Association, complimentary registration, lodging, travel assistance, and personalized mentorship to ensure an inclusive and welcoming conference experience. The deadline to apply for these scholarships is set for 23rd February at 23:59 UTC, providing an opportunity for eligible individuals to seek support and participation in the upcoming event.
In addition to offering scholarships, the Drupal Association is also extending community grants to facilitate the attendance of key Drupal community contributors at DrupalCon North America. The grants include a $500 travel stipend and one free general admission ticket, particularly targeting non-U.S.-based contributors who would not have the financial means to attend global Drupal events otherwise. Priority is given to individuals involved in high-impact Drupal community contribution roles and initiatives such as the Event Organizers Working Group, Community Working Group, Contribution Mentors, Drupal Strategic Initiatives, and the Promote Drupal Initiative.
Those interested in applying for the community grants are encouraged to submit their applications, with further inquiries directed to [email protected] for clarification. You can learn more about the opportunity here.
