OPPORTUNITY: Code4Lib 2020 Diversity Scholarship Program

Code4Lib invites applications for its 2020 Diversity Scholarship program. Each scholarship will cover up to $1,500 for travel costs, lodging, and conference fees for selected applicants to attend the 2020 Code4Lib Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

From the announcement:

The scholarship will cover conference registration and hotel accommodations up front to scholarship awardees. Other incidentals like travel and meals may be reimbursed based on the amount awarded. […] Please contact code4libaward@gmail.com with any questions about this arrangement. We want to ensure that financial issues do not discourage anyone from applying to this award.

We do not expect scholarship recipients to be responsible for being an ambassador for their group or an educator of others during the conference. While learning and exchange may happen as a result of interactions between participants, scholarship recipients are encouraged to focus on getting the most out of their experience and have no special duties or obligations apart from conference attendance, engaged participation to their comfort level, and giving us feedback on their experience.

Applications will be accepted through November 26th. For additional details and access to the submission form please visit the Code4Lib scholarship site.
