Scholarship Program

The Erlang community is one of the most friendly and helpful tech communities out there but, much as the rest of the tech world, it's nowhere near as diverse as its members would wish it to be. Erlang Factory is addressing this problem and commits to building a technology scene where everybody, regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, age, socioeconomic background etc. feels welcome and comfortable.

This year we are implementing our first ever Diversity Scholarship Program. It is primarily aimed at (but not restricted to) women, people from ethnic minorities and people with disabilities who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference due to financial reasons. While women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities will be given priority, depending on our funding we will also consider students or others who cannot attend the event due to financial difficulties.

Eligibility: People who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference for financial reasons. A preference will be given to applicants based in the US.

Selection: A committee will review applications on individual basis. All committee members will sign a confidentiality agreement to protect the anonymity of applicants. We will do our best to meet as many applications as possible. Please keep in mind that this is the first year of the scholarship program and we do not know what to expect in terms of demands. 

Award: Applicants will receive a conference registration ticket for 26-27 March. 

Notification: All applicants will be notified via email with conference registration details.

Application: If you wish to apply for a scholarship, please fill in this form. All application information will be kept confidential. The deadline for applications is 6 March 2015. Recipients will be notified on a rolling basis, no later than 13 March 2015.

All conference and event attendees are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct

If you have any questions, please contact conferences@erlang-solutions.com.
