Scholarship Program

GORUCO’s diversity schol­ar­ship program aims to support traditionally underrepresented and marginalized people in the Ruby and greater tech communities who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend the conference for financial reasons.

Equal access and di­ver­sity are im­por­tant to us, and we aim to remove this ob­sta­cle for un­der­rep­re­sented attendees. We want you at the conference, and we want to help you get there.

Award

Scholarship recipients will receive a GORUCO 2017 ticket free of charge. Travel assistance is not included.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a GORUCO Scholarship, you must be a full or part-time student; or a person identifying as a woman, person of color, LGBT or person with disabilities; or a member/alumni of recognized minority-focused STEM organizations; and be unable to attend without some financial assistance.

Applying

Please submit your scholarship application by Saturday, May 20 at 10:00am EDT.

Applications are reviewed by a subset of GORUCO's organizers and schol­ar­ships are awarded based on a com­bi­na­tion of need and impact.

All applicants will be notified of their application's status by Friday, May 26.
