November 18 – 21 | San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California | #KubeCon #CloudNativeCon

Diversity Scholarship Information

Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s diversity scholarship program provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups 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) who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend CNCF events for financial reasons.

A number of scholarships will be provided and recipients will receive up to $1,500 USD to reimburse actual travel expenses. Please note that you will be responsible to arrange and pay for your hotel and flight directly. You will then be reimbursed up to the maximum stipend amount of $1,500 USD after the event. The stipend may only be used for the following: coach airfare, hotel / accommodations (up to four nights), and ground transportation (to and from the airport). Recipients will also receive complimentary conference registration.

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Selection will be made by an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request. All application information will be kept confidential.

Information to Help Navigate the Visa Process
Start at the embassy or consulate website for the country you’re traveling to. Typically, you’ll fill out visa application forms online, print and mail them in, or hand-deliver them to the local consulate in your area. Some embassies/consulates will require you to make an in-person appointment.

On average, the process takes anywhere from two weeks to two months.

It is absolutely crucial that you meet all the requirements the embassy is asking from you.

Call your local embassy and ask for detailed instructions as to what documents they’ll need from you. Embassies are all different and the required documents can vary from country to country.

If your embassy/consulate requires an in-person appointment, and you are worried about availability and timing before the event, you might want to consider making an appointment now. If you’re only able to travel if granted a scholarship, you could choose an appointment date within a week of the scheduled scholarship notifications. That way you have the appointment if granted, and can cancel if you’re unable to attend. Be sure to check with the embassy if there are any fees associated with making or canceling an appointment.

Scholarship Applications Due: Monday, September 9, 2019
All Applicants Will be Notified By: September 27, 2019
