PyCon AU gender diversity grants for women in Python
====================================================

PyCon AU is pleased to announce that it will be offering two gender
diversity delegate grants to women who wish to attend PyCon AU in
2011. These grants will *both* cover full registration costs; in
addition, one of the grants will cover up to $AUD500 of travel and
accommodation costs for a woman living outside of the Sydney region to
attend.

These grants aim to reduce the financial barriers to attending PyCon
AU 2011, by subsidising the registration and travel costs of people
from diverse groups, who contribute in important ways to the Python
community.
