We’re very pleased to announce that we launched today our scholarship and volunteer programs for the upcoming SymfonyCon Cluj, November 16th and 17th. We are very pleased to launch both programs and we really hope to help the Symfony community members who can’t afford to attend the conference to be part of this great event.
We’ve teamed up with PHP Women to launch and lead our scholarship program selection. SymfonyCon’s scholarship program is aimed to support Symfony community members who want to attend the conference, but can’t without this scholarship. Anyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or socioeconomic status can apply for a scholarship.
We want to include, encourage and recognize people from all backgrounds no matter where you come from. If you cannot attend the conference without financial aid, you are eligible to our scholarship program.
We will consider every application. Priority will be given to underrepresented groups such as women, minorities, LGBTQIA and people with disabilities, or other underrepresented groups who will be unable to attend the event without financial support.
Within the Symfony community, we support diversity and inclusion and are proud to launch our SymfonyCon’s scholarship program.
Apply here for the SymfonyCon’s scholarship program until Tuesday, October 17th.
We are also launching a special volunteer program for this year’s SymfonyCon conference. Being a volunteer means helping us for organizational/logistical tasks during the conference while attending the event for free. As a volunteer, we’ll ask you to choose among the following tasks: check the attendees badge at conference doors, pass the mic for Q&A time at the end of each talk, give away attendee’s tote bag, help lost attendees, mentor at the hackday….
Each volunteer should volunteer at least 4 hours throughout the conference days (Thursday November 16th and Friday November 17th) and will receive a free ticket to attend the conference and hackday (workshops are not included). You’ll also be invited to join the speaker dinner on Wednesday, November 15th and get extra free drinks at the conference social event.
We’re looking for 10 volunteers! While the program is open to everyone, priority will be given to students. We want to support the students who are eager to learn more about Symfony but can’t afford the conference ticket to join us there.
Apply here until Tuesday, October 17th for the SymfonyCon’s volunteer program.
