The Sloan Foundation technology program is sponsoring a scholarship fund to enable participation in OSPOCon by faculty, staff, students, and/or administrators actively engaged with or interested in learning more about Open Source Program Offices in Academic/Research institutions. Anyone working at an academic institution is eligible – there’s a cap of 2 scholarships per institution so interested applicants are encouraged to apply soon; the submission deadline is September 7th. As I understand it, you can register to attend either virtually or in person; there are separate programs that Sloan is offering to support registration and travel.
Scholarships & travel funding are available for the event in Seattle in late September, see
and also a London based event in October , see
