Both the Selenium project and the SeleniumConf organizers very much want everyone to be able to attend the conference, but we know that not everyone’s personal or financial circumstances make this possible – so, we’re setting aside a minimum of six free tickets as part of our scholarship program, as well as covering travel and lodging expenses for selected applicants.
Originally inspired by RubyConf, we also offer to pair our scholars with a guide if they’d like one. A guide is an experienced member of the community and will be a friendly face at the conference, there to help make sure you get the best out of your conference experience and to introduce you to other people at the event.
The program aims to support individuals from underrepresented groups in tech and those facing economic or social hardship to have access to brilliant content and networking opportunities. If you’re an aspiring software professional looking to use Selenium, or a current one without access to the funds to buy your ticket, you should apply. We will award tickets to people who can show that the knowledge gained will be useful for their ongoing career.
Scholarship applications will be accepted between now and 1 February, 2023. Here’s a link to the application form.
