OKCon 2013 is happy to announce that we have received a grant to support travel bursaries to help some people with limited financial resources take part in the conference this September. A special thanks goes to the Foundation Open Society Institute (FOSI), a Swiss charitable foundation within the Open Society Foundations, which helped to make this possible.

Our travel bursaries cover:

  • international travel and transport costs from your city of departure and back

  • accommodation (which we’ll be glad to book for you)

  • lunch at the conference venue on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th September.

You can find further details, instructions and the submission form on the OKCon 2013 Travel Bursaries webpage.
The OKCon travel bursary programme starts today (4th July) and ends on 14th July, at 23:59:59 GMT. We are looking forward to receiving your applications!
