Sponsoring C++ on Sea Diversity & Support Tickets

£1,445 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 1 month
Created December 13, 2018
The goal of #include <cpp> is to help make the C++ community a more inclusive, welcoming place. One way we work towards this is by sponsoring attendees to go to conferences who may otherwise be unable to attend.

C++ on Sea  is an international C++ conference taking place in Folkestone, Kent, UK from 4th-6th February 2019. Funds raised from this campaign will help pay travel and accommodation costs for those who need them. The conference has kindly agreed to both match donations, and supply tickets for the main conference and speakers dinner to those who are selected (this does not include workshops; these may be purchased separately).

Application to receive supporting funds is open to anyone, but intended for those who require financial support to attend. Selection will be carried out by a panel of #include <cpp> organisers, who will be looking at how much an applicant and the conference would benefit from their attendance. Priority will be given to those from underrepresented groups. If you would like to apply, please fill in this form. Deadline for applications is 2019-01-06.

We hope to provide five places at the conference as part of this campaign, although this is subject to funds raised and geographic location of selected candidates (location is not taken into account during selection).

Any funds raised above the costs for the selected candidates will be used for future campaigns of the same nature.

We've hit £1000! Thank you to everyone who has donated or shared. We'd love to raise more so we can send more people to the conference, so please keep sharing!

Applications for the tickets are still open until the 6th January: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd1SnRvNgiVSV9U-mX9HffbqYFTXngFKXLlcjbvrL11Q1QQGg/viewform?usp=sf_link

Once the applications close, we will select the winners within a week. After that, the money will be withdrawn by a #include <C++> organiser, travel and accommodation will be booked with help from C++ on Sea and paid for using the funds raised. We will send updates as this progresses so that you can know what is happening with your donation.
