Python Software Foundation Outreach Programme
LCA 2015 and the Python Software Foundation are proud to support our community. To supplement the existing InternetNZ Diversity fund the PSF have donated additional funds for candidates within the Python community.
The Python Software Foundation appreciates LCA 2015's commitment to diversity, and is proud to add its own contribution in the form of the Python Software Foundation Outreach Fund. Much system software for Linux is written in Python (including both distro level tools and open source system management projects like OpenStack, Salt and Ansible), and Linux is often the default choice for deployment of Python web services and other networked applications. This contribution is intended to strengthen ties between the Python and Linux communities by assisting under-represented delegates who participate in the Python community in the region but, without financial assistance, would not be able to attend LCA 2015.
Funding applications for LCA 2015 Python Software Foundation Outreach Programme are now open and must be received before Tuesday the 30th of December..
To apply, you will need to create an account and then apply.
You will be requested to supply a small amount of personal and supporting information so we can allocate the funds kindly donated by the PSF.

Funding requests can cover a wide range of areas including :-
- conference ticket
- airfare or travel assistance
- mobility requirements
Note: all information provided will be treated in strictest confidence.
InternetNZ Diversity Programme
LCA 2015 and InternetNZ are proud to support diversity.
The InternetNZ Diversity Programme is one way we ensure that LCA 2015 continues to be an open and welcoming conference for everyone. Together with InternetNZ this program has been created to assist under-represented delegates who contribute to the Open Source community but, without financial assistance, would not be able to attend LCA 2015.
Funding applications for LCA 2015 InternetNZ Diversity Programme are now closed and funding is being allocated.
