GopherCon UK is dedicated to improving diversity in the technology industry. Over the past few years, we've taken steps towards making GopherCon UK a welcoming and inclusive event for all attendees. Some of the changes we've implemented are:
GopherCon UK's scholarship program provides aide to members of underrepresented groups who may not otherwise be able to attend our conference for financial reasons.
Applicants should be a member of an underrepresented group in technology - women, minorities, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, or other underrepresented groups - and be unable to attend without financial assistance.
If you are employed, and your employer is able to sponsor your travel, we can list them as a scholarship sponsor.
Each scholarship awardee will be paired with a mentor to help familiarize the awardee with the conference. Anyone who is already attending the event can volunteer to be a mentor, just fill out the application form below.
To apply, please fill out the scholarship or mentorship application. All application info will be kept confidential. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We need your help! If you are interested in supporting the scholarship program as an individual, you may do so while registering for the conference.
