[opensuse-conference] Conference travel sponsorship program

as you probably already have heard we started the travel sponsorship program to financially support community members to attend the conference.

If the only thing that keeps you from attending and contributing to the conference is that you can’t afford all of the travel costs then you should apply. As always, we value contributions the most! So obviously we prefer speakers (you still have until midnight July 25th to submit something!), people who help with the organization and openSUSE Members. Also our Google Summer of Code students/mentors and Ambassadors from very far away are high on our list. However, depending on funds and contributions, we will try to accommodate as many people as possible!

To apply for support, you need to make an estimation of your travel costs. Search for a cheap airfare or train trip, look for hotels and make a rough estimation of your costs. Then send that estimation to us via travel-support@xxxxxxxxxxxx until August 5th! We’ll contact you about our options for your sponsoring. Please note that we won’t be able to pay everything for everybody all the time. The sponsorship program has limited resources and we want to make the most of it. Let us be blunt: Request only what you really can’t afford yourself and use this program as a last resort! Every cent you use can’t be used by your fellow Lizards!

Get going and apply now until August 5th! :)
