Now accepting Financial Aid applications
2016 January 21

But PyCon attendees who don’t live in Portland face many expenses beyond simply paying the registration fee. Travel can cost hundreds of dollars from within the United States, and more than a thousand for community members who fly from overseas. Lodging can be an equally weighty expense. And while the conference does provide breakfast and lunch on the three main conference days, that still leaves several meals that the traveler will have to pay for on their own.
Because these registration and travel expenses would make PyCon impossible for some community members, PyCon offers a Financial Assistance program to make it possible for the conference to host a wider cross-section of the Python community than could otherwise attend!
