The OpenStack Foundation announces the availability of travel grants under the OpenStack Travel Support Program. The program’s aim is to facilitate participation of key contributors to the OpenStack Design Summit covering costs for travel and accommodation. The Travel Support Program is based on the promise of Open Design, one of the founding principles upon which the OpenStack project is built.
Key contributors are contributors whose presence is specifically relevant for the topics to be discussed at the Summit they’re applying to. Relevance of somebody’s presence is never evaluated in general ways: it’s always relative to the content being discussed at the specific Summit. The OpenStack Foundation will set aside a fund to support this program. The total amount of the fund is to be divided among the key contributors.
How to apply
All contributors to OpenStack (developers, documentation writers, organisers of user groups around the world, Ask moderators, translators, etc) are invited to submit a request. PTLs and code reviewers also are requested to propose candidates.
- Candidates apply on the online form starting today with the deadline of July 31
- Travel Selection Committee evaluates entries based on criterias stated on the wiki page Travel Support Program
- Travel Agent coordinates with key contributors.
The OpenStack Foundation will coordinate directly with the approved key contributors to arrange for their travel, according to the level of funds granted. More details on the wiki page Travel Support Program.
