We are pleased to announce that we are now seeking applicants for our 2020
Diversity Scholarship program.
  Code4Lib 2020 Diversity Scholarships: Apply Now!

As part of Code4Lib's ongoing commitment to reducing economic barriers that
prevent participation for underrepresented groups, and to achieving a
balanced representation of the human experience, we are pleased to announce
that we are now seeking applicants for our 2020 Diversity Scholarship

Scholarship Committee hopes to award multiple Diversity Scholarships, based
on merit and need. Each scholarship will cover up to $1500 for travel
costs, lodging, and conference fees for selected applicants to attend the
2020 Code4Lib Conference
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Check out the Code4Lib 2020 Scholarships Webpage!

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. Reimbursement will be
managed independently at the conference. Pairing up housing with other
scholarship awardees or conference attendees may also be accommodated.

Please contact code4libaward at 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.
