Financial Aid Program

All conference attendees including event chair, volunteers, speakers pays for PyCon registration. This is beloved philosophy of PyCon. That way, we can achieve the attendees be part of the conference with equal status. [Everybody Pays]

However, in the other hand, the philosophy might be a barrier to someone who can not afford for the ticket or expense of traveling. We take this as another discrimination.

To solve this irony, PyCon Korea 2018 team has a financial aid program, providing funds to help people attend PyCon. Financial aid recipients have some part of their expenses (which can include registration, travel, accommodation) paid for with the PyCon budget. While we can't cover all expenses for everyone, we try our hardest to optimally allocate our budget. 

The financial aid program is set to minimize the financial barrier of the conference and to maximize the benefits to the community. For instance, taking students and engineers with full-time job into consideration, we will favor the students. Then, community contributors or conference speakers will have high priority.

Please contact to for any questions.
