We care a lot about diversity in the React community. Diversity of background and experience adds depth and richness to the community, the code we write, the events we attend, and the people we are. We want to make it easier for people marginalized or underrepresented groups to attend the conference because we think it will make it better for everyone.
We have a review board evaluate every application. Everyone will receive a yes or a no by the selection deadline.
Two Kinds of Scholarships
We are offering *two kinds of scholarships*: conference tickets only, and full ride (conference ticket + hotel + flight). Full ride scholarships are much more expensive, so there are fewer of them available. We believe by doing two kinds of scholarships we help more people attend with our limited resources. If you're awarded a conference ticket scholarship you'll be expected to arrange and pay for your own travel and accommodation. If you're awarded a full ride we'll contact you to arrange travel details.
