PyCon Portugal 2023 offers grants so that those who might otherwise not be able to attend won't hesitate to participate. Some expenses for the conference attendance (which could include travel, hotel, registration, etc) will be covered for opportunity grant recipients.
We actively encourage you to apply for an opportunity grant. While we wish we could give grants to everyone who applies, we do not have the funds to do that. Our goal is to maximize the impact our grant program has, within the limited funds we have.
We try to do this in a number of ways:
Our program prioritises anyone who is part of an under-represented or marginalized group. They include, but are not limited to:
The closing date for grant applications is July 30th, 23:59 UTC. We aim to inform you of the results within a few days after closing the application window. Note that if you need a grant, you must apply before the deadline. Moreover, speakers are automatically entitled to a ticket.
Lastly, we know that some of you reading this will doubt whether it's right and proper for you to apply for a grant. That's why we want to stress:
With our limited funds, we can't promise you will receive a grant, but if you're not sure, we encourage you to apply. If you're uncomfortable with other people knowing you received a grant, you don't have to tell them - our policy is to never publicly identify grant applicants or recipients without their explicit permission.
If you have questions, you can write to email@example.com.
The application window closes on July 30th!
