Diversity Scholarships


This year LoopConf is happy to introduce a diversity scholarship program. This program provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and open source communities who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend LoopConf for financial reasons.

Equal access and diversity are important to us, and we don’t want finances to be an obstacle. We want you at LoopConf, and we want to do what we can to help you attend.

Selection will be made by LoopConf organizers as well as a few other trusted advisors. We will review each application and choose recipients based on a number of factors such as financial situation, eligibility requirements, and overall impact.

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary conference and workshop pass, airfare to and from LoopConf, and accommodation at the conference hotel.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants should be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group in the technology and/or open source communities including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQ, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities; and be unable to attend without some financial assistance.

How to Apply

To apply for a diversity scholarship, fill out our online application. That’s it! Of course, all information will be kept strictly confidential. We’ll be emailing recipients as their applications are approved. We hope to approve as many scholarships as possible, so we likely won’t have a hard cut off until 3-4 weeks before the conference.

Want to Encourage Diversity at LoopConf?

All scholarships are sponsor-driven. The more support that we receive from companies and individuals, the more¬†scholarship applications we’ll be able to approve, which will undoubtedly make for an awesome event. If you’d like to sponsor a diversity scholarship, get in touch and we’ll give you all the information you need to become a diversity scholarship supporter.
