The EuroPython Society (EPS) is sponsoring financial aid with 15,000

We offer financial aid conference grants in these 2 categories:
- Free ticket. Get a standard ticket for the conference for free
(including access to conference days (Wed-Fri), Beginners’ Day
workshop and sprints.). Note: training passes are NOT included in
the free conference ticket.
- Travel / Accommodation. We will cover the travel costs pro rata,
depending on what you are applying for. You can get partial refund
for the accommodation.
EuroPython is a wonderful place to meet and share your experience with
other Python developers from Europe and all around the world. Our goal
is support people which want to make Python community better:
conference speakers and tutorial presenters, active people from small
Python communities and open source contributors.
Our grants are open to all people in need of financial aid. We will
specifically take into account the following criteria in the selection
- Contributors: potential speakers/trainers of EuroPython (people who
submitted a proposal) and all who contribute to EuroPython and/or
Python community projects.
- Economic factors: we want everybody to have a chance to come to
EuroPython, regardless of economic situation or income level.
- Diversity: we seek the most diverse and inclusive event possible.
