Financial Aid

As part of our commitment to the Python community, we are pleased to announce that we offer special grants for people in need of financial aid to attend EuroPython.

Note: We are no longer accepting Financial Aid applications for EuroPython 2023.

Grant Types

You can apply for three different types of grants:

  1. Free Ticket Voucher Grant: Get a voucher for a free standard ticket for the in-person conference.
  2. Travel/Accommodation Grant: We will reimburse travel and/or accommodation costs up to €400.
  3. Visa Application Fee Grant: Get reimbursed for the costs of a short-stay Schengen visa to the Czech Republic (up to €80).

Grant Eligibility

Our grants are open to everyone in need of financial support to participate in EuroPython. We will look at the following criteria to help decide who qualifies for a grant:

  1. Contributors: We want to support those who make the Python community a positive, inclusive and welcoming space. We welcome grant applications from folks who need financial support and who clearly put effort into the community and EuroPython, including speakers, volunteers, community organizers, and open-source contributors.
  2. Social & Economic factors: Everyone should have a chance to attend EuroPython, regardless of their social or economic situation.
  3. Diversity: We want EuroPython to be the most diverse and inclusive event possible, and we especially want to help those from under-represented groups in tech feel welcomed, be present in and contribute to our community.

How to apply

The deadline for submitting Financial Aid applications has passed. You can no longer apply for Financial Aid for EuroPython 2023.

Privacy Policy

The data we collect on the application form will exclusively be used by our Financial Aid team for the selection of grant recipients and the processing of financial aid refunds. No data is passed on to third parties, except to our accountants and the bank in order to process the refunds. We use Google Forms for the processing and Google Drive for storing the relevant information.

For more details on our privacy policies, please see our privacy policy.


Grants will be awarded in two rounds. This makes it easier for us to reallocate grants in case grant offers were rejected in the first round. Receiving a grant early is also beneficial for people having to apply for a Schengen visa.

If you’ve applied for the first round, you will automatically be considered during the second round if you did not receive a grant during the first round. You do not have to reapply separately for the second round. In fact, if you want to increase your chances of receiving a grant, it is recommended to apply early.

Note: dates in the timeline follow the Anywhere on Earth convention.
