O’Reilly Conference Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship Program

At O'Reilly, we believe that true innovation depends on hearing from, and listening to, people with a variety of perspectives. We want our conferences, and the technology communities and companies who participate in them, to include, encourage, and recognize people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service.

To help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups from participating in O’Reilly conferences, we're offering scholarships to members of underrepresented groups in the technical community.

What’s Included

  • Conference pass that includes workshops/tutorials, plus the video compilation (Gold Pass or equivalent); training courses are not included in the scholarship
  • $599 (USD) prepaid gift card to help offset the costs related to attending the conference such as travel, lodging, food, and child care; gift card will be awarded to recipient onsite at the conference

Requirements

  • Be a member of a group not well-represented within the tech community or at technical conferences, including but not limited to: women, people of color, people with disabilities, LGBT+, veterans
  • Must be able to attend the conference for which you are applying
  • If employed, your employer will not cover the cost of your conference attendance
  • Must be 18 years old or over to apply
  • Must agree to follow our Code of Conduct

Application deadlines

Please note that the application deadlines for the O'Reilly Design Conference, Software Architecture, and OSCON have passed and applications are no longer being accepted for those conferences. Applicants for OSCON will be notified March 27-29.

Scholarship applications for JupyterCon in New York will open in April.

Scholarships are only available for select US conferences at this time.

Fine print: Applicants may not be awarded more than one scholarship per calendar year. Scholarship recipients are responsible for arranging their own travel and lodging. Scholarship recipients are responsible for their own financial reporting. Scholarships will be awarded for US conferences only. Due to limited availability, only one scholarship may be awarded per company.
