About the funding:
As part of Code4Lib’s ongoing commitment to reducing economic barriers that prevent participation for underrepresented groups and achieving a balanced representation of the human experience, we are pleased to announce that we are now seeking applicants for our 2019 Diversity Scholarship program http://2019.code4lib.org/general-info/scholarships! The Code4Lib Scholarship Committee hopes to award 15 Diversity Scholarships, based on merit and need. Each scholarship will cover up to $1500 for travel costs, lodging, and conference fees for selected applicants to attend the 2019 Code4Lib Conference in San José, California. The deadline for applications is Friday, November 16, 2018 at 11:59 PM/ET. The scholarship will cover conference registration and hotel accommodations up front to scholarship awardees. Other incidentals like travel and meals may be reimbursed based on the amount awarded. Reimbursement will be managed independently at the conference. Pairing up housing with other scholarship awardees or conference attendees may also be accommodated. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about this arrangement. We want to ensure that financial issues do not discourage anyone from applying to this award.
