PyCon US 2024 Travel Grants

Philosophy/Outreach

PyCon US, Python Software Foundation, and PyLadies are excited to offer Travel Grants to PyCon US 2024. Travel grants bring people to PyCon US who might otherwise not be able to attend and support diversity, inclusion, and outreach to speakers, students, and other attendees.

PyCon US has a large travel grant program funded by the PSF and PyLadies. Travel grant recipients receive support for some or all of their expenses, including transportation, lodging, and meal per diems, and complimentary registration. We actively encourage people to apply for travel grants; everyone is welcome to apply! While we wish we could give grants to everyone who applies, our funds are limited.

Our goal is to get the most people to PyCon US by optimizing the funds we have.

The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers. Our travel grant program aligns with these goals.
