We offer financial aid conference grants in these 3 categories:

  1. Free ticket. Get a personal ticket for the conference for free (including access to talks, trainings, sprints, etc.)

  2. Travel costs. We will cover the travel costs pro rata, depending on what you are applying for.

  3. Accommodation. You can get partial refund for the accommodation.

Note: the social event is NOT included in the EuroPython 2017 conference tickets. You will have to purchase separate tickets if you want to attend the social event.

Grant Eligibility

EuroPython is the a wonderful place to meet and share your experience for Python developers from Europe and all around the word. Our goal is support people which want to  make Python community better: conference speakers and tutorial presenters, active people from small Python communities and open source contributors.

Our grants are open to all people in need of financial aid. We will specifically take into account the following criteria in the selection process:

  • Contributors: potential speakers/trainers of EuroPython (people who submitted a proposal) and all who contribute to EuroPython and/or Python community projects.

  • Economic factors: we want everybody to have a chance to come to EuroPython, regardless of economic situation or income level.

  • Diversity: we seek the most diverse and inclusive event possible.
