Diversity Scholarships

Closes at April 17th 2024

Python's presence in software development worldwide continues to increase, leading to new outcomes changing our time. At PyCon Colombia, in addition to promoting open source and sharing among all attendees, we strive every year to ensure that our community is as accessible and diverse as possible. We see diversity and inclusion as a benefit to the ecosystem and its individuals.

We aim for PyCon Colombia to be inclusive of the entire Python community in our country. In order to help alleviate financial barriers to attending the conference, the PyCon organizing committee is offering scholarships to individuals who face financial obstacles, including students and members of underrepresented groups within the Python community. These scholarships cover the cost of conference admission.

It should be noted that scholarship recipients will be responsible for covering all other expenses, such as travel, accommodations, visa fees, and transportation.

These scholarships are aimed at individuals facing financial barriers, including students and individuals from underrepresented groups in the technology community, such as women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, persons with disabilities, and racial and ethnic minorities. We encourage all of you to apply for our scholarships.

Please read the following instructions and complete the form to apply for the scholarship.

Please note that each application will be individually reviewed by the PyCon Colombia Organizing Team and classified according to the application form and letter of intent responses. All personal information collected will be kept confidential.

Submitting your application doesn’t guarantee immediate eligibility. Please review the terms and conditions.
