GitHub Universe Ticket Scholarship Application

GitHub Universe is coming to San Francisco on October 11th-12th!

We are aware that ticket prices to technical conferences can be prohibitive for many, so in an effort to make Universe more accessible to those who would like to attend, we have set aside a small number of scholarship tickets. Please note that Universe scholarships do not include airfare or lodging. This scholarship is for the ticket price of the conference only and does not include the Workshop Day on October 10th. We are also unable to provide letters for visas, at this time.

If you'd like to be considered for a free ticket, please complete this form by 12pm PST Sunday, August 13th.

We are also striving to make GitHub Universe a supportive and accessible event through a range of accommodations, including gender neutral bathrooms, closed-captioning, baby care/nursing room, and more. If you'd like to confirm whether GitHub Universe is suitable for your particular needs, please get in touch: scholarships@github.com

Good luck :)
