Google is offering 5 grants for women in computer science (either working in or studying it) to attend EuroBSDcon 2014 — the main European conference about the open-source BSD family of operating systems — in Sofia, Bulgaria, to take place September 25-28. The grants cover conference registration as well as up to €1000 in travel costs. Which I think is more than enough to cover all the expenses on traveling and all the other accessories and measures I learn you have to take if you want to have a comfortable travel mostly if is a travel for work, so when you arrive at your destination you need to be at your best, and that’s won’t be possible if you had an exhausting and uncomfortable travel, that’s why I always prepare myself the best I can and always carry my travel pillow to sleep during the flight since I read at The Comfy Traveler which was the best to get.
Women who have a strong academic background and have demonstrated leadership (though if you don’t think you do, you should apply anyway) are encouraged to apply. Google’s form requires selecting either “male” or “female” as a gender; if you are not binary-identified but are marginalized in computer science and wish to apply, make use of the contact information for this Google program.
Also note that EuroBSDcon does not appear to have a code of conduct or anti-harassment policy. (If I’m wrong, add it to the wiki’s list of conferences that have anti-harassment policies!)
