Scholarship: No one should be left out

One of the core values of Code & Supply is enabling everyone to learn. C&S has a long history of providing scholarships to attendees in need. That is why we established the non-profit Code & Supply Scholarship Fund.

What does a scholarship cover?

A scholarship may be used to cover all or a part of a recipient’s travel and accommodations.

C&S donated several dozen tickets to the Scholarship Fund, so registration is covered, as well.

When is the deadline to apply?

For ticket-only requests, there is no deadline to apply. CSSF Selection Committee will award as many ticket-only requests as donated tickets are available.

For requests requiring travel reimbursement, the deadline to apply is July 1, 2019. Scholarships are granted as funds are available. After that deadline, if funds are still available, CSSF may still accept applications for travel assistance until July 21, 2019. After that date, only ticket-only requests will be considered.
