We are running our Scholarship Program, which provides individuals from underrepresented groups with support to attend JSConf Ireland.
We are very grateful and would like to say a big Thank You to the companies and individuals who donate to our Scholarship Program.Granting these scholarships is made possible thanks to the wonderful people that buy Diversity Support Tickets, as well as the generous contributions made by our sponsors.
Anyone from an underrepresented group in tech is invited to apply for a scholarship. We especially invite and welcome Black, Indigenous & People of Color, QTIBIPOC/LGBTQIA+ people, people with disabilities, and people facing economic or social hardships. If you've wanted to visit JSConf Ireland, but haven't had the money or resources to, this is your chance! The Scholarship Program was made for you.
Frequently asked questions
We provide two kinds of scholarships, one with travel grant and one without.
If you get selected for a scholarship with travel support, you will receive a combo ticket to JSConf Ireland. Additionally and dependent on what you need, we will organize and cover your flights/transport and/or hotel (up to 3 nights). We will get in touch with you to discuss further travel details but if you have any questions beforehand, please reach out to us via email@example.com
In case you get a ticket-only scholarship, you will receive just a Regular ticket to JSConf Ireland.
This depends on whether you need a visa to enter Ireland. We have two separate application timelines for people who need a visa and people who do not need a visa (i.e. Schengen area residents). The timelines are as follows:
If you need a visa: You need to apply before the 1st of June and we will let you know if you have been selected before the 1st of July.
If you do not need a Visa: You need to apply before the 1st of August and we will let you know if you have been selected before the 1st of September.
