Financial assistance applications are now open

14 June 2017

PyCon Australia offers a generous financial assistance programme, so that some attendees and speakers have some -- or in rare cases, all -- of their expenses such as flight, hotel and admission provided to them from the conference budget.

We strongly encourages people to apply for financial assistance -- even if we can’t cover all of your expenses, we will give you free or discounted admission based on need.

Essentially, the financial assistance programme is the PyCon Outreach programme -- it's the community holding up the community and making itself accessible at this major event through these financial grants. It is the very spirit of the conference: make the information, knowledge, friendships and connection available to everyone.

The generous contribution of the Python Software Foundation has helped us in offering this programme. Financial assistance is core to the mission of the PSF -- The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers.

Applications close on Friday 30 June 2017 and you will receive a response by 4 July. However applications will be approved progressively so please apply early and your application may be approved early.
