IN/Clojure aims to be an inclusive conference. We're really glad to announce an opportunity grant for community members who would be unable to attend the conference for financial reasons. The opportunity grant includes a free ticket and travel assistance.
Please fill out this form to apply for an opportunity grant. Please do share the link with your friends who might be interested.
We want our conference to have a diverse set of attendees. Ashe Dryden has written a detailed post on how to improve diversity at conferences, and it includes a section on what "diversity" means. We will try our best to be truly diverse.
Preference will be given to attendees who fall into an under-represented category in tech - women, members of the LGBTQ community, people with physical disabilities, and any other under-represented group.
However, please DO apply even if you do not fall into any of those categories!
You've never written a line of Clojure? It doesn't matter - apply anyway!
You don't think you 'deserve' to attend? You DO! - please apply!
Your friends are not attending the conference? - we'll help you meet new people and make new friends.
Decisions on the opportunity grant will be made by the organizing team with help from a diversity committee. Preference for travel assistance will be given to participants from the Bengaluru region and other cities in India (due to budget constraints). We are open to consider applications from outside India as well.
