All scholarships have now been awarded. Thanks to everyone for their time!
RustConf 2017 will award a number of conference scholarship tickets to community members who might otherwise not be able to make it.
Applications are open to anyone who would not normally attend, though we specifically encourage students, women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups in Rust and tech at large to apply.
The application period will be open for three weeks, or until we award all available tickets. All applicants will receive responses, one way or the other.
Scholarships include one free ticket to the Saturday RustConf conference. Any donations received for the scholarship program will be used to reimburse recipient travel expenses, but no specific amount can be guaranteed, and the amount may be insignificant.
