We are happy to announce that EuroPython is offering a grant with 3 free
tickets reserved to students and 3 free tickets reserved to unemployed
programmers, including hotel accommodation.

This grant is sponsored partly by the Python Italia Association, and partly by
the generous contribution of many speakers who are renouncing to the ticket
discount they were offered.

The grant includes a free ticket for the conference (with access to buffets)
and accommodation in two triple rooms for the whole conference week.

The grant is open to everybody, even people that have already bought a ticket
(in which case we would proceed to a refund).

### Students

  * Must be 30 years old or less (on 1st January 2012).
  * Must be currently registered to a school, college, or university-level institute. 

### Unemployed programmers

  * Any age is allowed.
  * Must not be a student.
  * Must be actively seeking for a new job as a computer programmer.

## Application

Application is open until June 1st.

If you think you qualify for this grant, please send an e-mail to
[info at pycon.it](mailto:info at pycon.it), put the tag "[GRANT]" in the subject,
and write down a motivational letter covering the follow points:

  * Short introduction of yourself, your current study/job status
  * Your current experience with Python (if any)
  * Why you would like to join EuroPython
  * Why you have not bought a ticket yet
  * Which other conference you attended to in the past few years (if any).

All personal information contained in the motivational letter will be kept
strictly private.

Winners of the grant will be selected on June 3rd.

## Google Diversity Grant
