Applications for DjangoCon US travel grants now open

DjangoCon US 2013 is rapidly approaching! From September 2-7 this year, the Django community will converge on the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois for 6 days of tutorials, talks and sprinting. Earlybird tickets will be available until July 29. You can also book rooms at a discounted rate at the conference hotel by using the DjangoCon booking code, available through the DjangoCon US website.

If you’d like to go to DjangoCon US 2013, but cannot attend due to financial hardship, you can apply for financial aid to cover all or part of your travel expenses. The deadline for the grant submission is Wednesday July 31. We aim to inform grant recipients by August 5.

Travel grants are funded through the generous financial contributions of the corporate members of the DSF, as well as a generous allocation of complimentary tickets from the conference organisers, The Open Bastion. Many thanks also go to Lynn Root and her team of volunteers for once again managing the grants process.
