So far we’ve been able to fund 23 people, including 9 speakers, which is awesome!
However, we had a total of 61 financial aid applications, and there are several more deserving applicants. Each applicant has a different need. $500 may get someone to Austin, cover their lodging expenses, or help them purchase a conference ticket.
We really need your support so we can help as many people as possible attend DjangoCon! With an additional $5,500 (with an anonymous donor matching up to $2,250!) we could help 8 more people get to DjangoCon. We are sending out acceptance and rejection emails for financial aid on Monday, June 15, so if you can throw in a little bit of money, please buy a Diversity Supporter ticket or visit our Square Cash page and make a donation by the end of this weekend. Every donation helps!
