Everybody Contributes is one of PyCon’s core principles. All attendees, including speakers and volunteers, have to pay for registering. While following this convention,PyCon Taiwan also has a financial aid program to help friends in the community,financially or otherwise, so more people are able join us in the big event.
All who look for help attending the conference are welcomed to apply.The organizers will review all applications and allocate resources based on both the conference budget and the applicants’ conditions.While we hope to support everyone to participate in the community, the budget is unfortunately limited, and so is the financial aid program. In cases of insufficient resources, we wish to support those who are most in need and to maximize community gain available from the applicant’s participation.As such, we may be forced to turn down your application to prioritize others.
The financial aid program is open to all contributors, attendees, students,and speakers and aims to provide assistance to those who otherwise might not be able to attend the conference.
The Financial Aid includes conference fee, travel and accommodation expenses.(The travel and accommodation will be partly reimbursed at the actual expense, based on the results of the review.)
In general, the support limit is up to NTD 20,000. If you need more financial aid,you are encouraged to provide more detailed information while completing the form.
The native residents would get the funds via wire transfer, and for the foreigners,you can get the cash funds at the conference counter.
The Financial Aid Program closes on 30 June (15:59 UTC).
