linux.conf.au 2014 travel grants now available

Linux Australia and linux.conf.au 2014 are pleased to announce the 2014 travel grants programme.

linux.conf.au strives to be a conference that is open and accessible to the whole open source community. However, we realise that, no matter how we arrange the pricing for the conference, it will still be unaffordable for some members of the community.

These grants aim to reduce the financial barriers to attending linux.conf.au 2014, by subsidising the registration and travel costs of contributors to the community who would otherwise have difficulty affording the cost of attending the conference.

There are many things that can make it difficult for community members to get to the conference, and that can make you eligible for a travel grant. Membership of a group that is under-represented at the conference, and issues such as financial hardship and other personal difficulties are all considered valid reasons for an application.

Further details are available on the travel grant webpage. The deadline for applications is November 15.
