About the Scholarship Program
Scholarship submissions close at midnight EST June 20th, 2018.
Notifications will be sent June 23rd and nominees will have 48 hours to accept.
The Drupal GovCon Scholarship Program provides travel funds for this year's Drupal GovCon event.
Attendance at Drupal GovCon benefits the scholarship recipient by not only offsetting a portion of the travel expenses, but by also providing an authentic Drupal GovCon experience and connection to the larger Drupal community. Benefits of attending include networking, learning how to hold local events, training sprints, and learning more about the Drupal project.
Recipients will be selected based on their financial need, active contributions to the Drupal community, dedication to growing Drupal through code, community leadership, and mentoring. Additionally, recipients will be expected to volunteer for the equivalent of one half day during the event.
Scholarship applications will close in late June after speakers have been notified of session acceptance.
Who makes the selection?
The funds are managed by Drupal4Gov, llc. Award recipients are determined by a team of community members who make the selection.
What is required of recipients?
If selected for an award, recipients are awarded a full or partial award based on your their request and our total award budget.
In exchange, we ask that they:
- meet any deadlines set by our Coordinators
- follow any provided purchasing or reimbursement instructions
- volunteer 4 or more hours onsite at Drupal GovCon
Please do not take acceptance of this award lightly. If you accept the offer and spend community funds, but then are unable to attend the conference, you will be ineligible from receiving an award in the future.
