EmpireJS 2018 Scholarship Application
EmpireJS is a community run conference centered on the Javascript ecosystem and the web developer community in and near New York City. This year, EmpireJS will be held September 20th & 21st at Hunter College’s Kaye Playhouse in Manhattan. We are dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all our participants, as such we require that all attendees read and agree to our Code of Conduct (https://2018.empirejs.org/#coc).

Our scholarship is aimed at people of underrepresented identities & backgrounds studying computer science and/or working in software engineering who would not be able to attend without assistance. Conferences are wonderful opportunities to develop relationships within our industry, learn about cutting-edge technologies from experts in the community, and participate in the discourse in real time. As a community run event, it is important to us that we set an example for the industry by creating an inclusive environment; that includes initiatives such as this scholarship that help offset the inequity of access for marginalized communities in tech.

Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis, as such we encourage applicants to submit at their earliest convenience. All recipients will be awarded a ticket to attend the conference and conference affiliated evening programming. All recipients will be set up with a mentor to answer questions, help guide you through the event, and introduce you to fellow attendees. This year we are proud to be able to offer a limited amount of travel assistance.

Applications that require travel assistance will close September 2nd 11:59 PM ET (Eastern Time).

This scholarship is possible thanks to our sponsors. If you know of any companies or individuals who would like to help fund this initiative or work with us in the future, feel free to connect them with us at us@empirejs.org.
