Garden City RubyConf is announcing 10 Opportunity Scholarships for anyone who wants to be there, but need financial assistance. We encourage students, women and other under-represented groups to apply for the scholarships.
Tech conferences are a great opportunity to learn more about Software Development, craftsmanship, building contacts, extending professional and personal networks and setting one up for a bright career. At GCRC, the selected scholars would be paired with experienced programmers, called as mentors, during the conference days. Many conferences, like Rocky Mountain Ruby and RubyConf India have successfully implemented this in the past. If you or someone you know are interested in applying, please read the instructions below.
Please fill out this application to apply. This is your chance to tell us how you qualify for the scholarship. The conference is close so we recommend you apply soon. The application process will close on 11 PM IST, Dec 25th.
