It gives us great pleasure to announce a series of international travel bursaries for Open Government Data Camp 2011.

These travel bursaries available to support participants who could otherwise note afford to attend the camp. Bursaries include:

  • A European bursary for EU27 citizens and residents travelling from within Europe, provided by the European Commission.
  • An international bursary.
  • A US bursary, provided by the Sunlight Foundation.

Full details are available here.

If you would like to apply for the international bursary, please fill out the application form by 22:00 CEST on 14th September 2011.

The deadline for the EU travel bursary is 2200 CEST on 7th September 2011. Application form.

We would like to thank, amongst others, the Sunlight Foundation and the European Commission for making this possible. We are sure that these bursaries will contribute to helping make OGDCamp 2011 the world’s biggest open government data event to date!
