PyCon UK

Financial Assistance

Our financial assistance programme exists to support attendees who might otherwise find it difficult to attend the conference. We have a budget set aside for this purpose.

The deadline for applications has now passed. The organisers will not be able to accept further applications for 2019.

If you have applied for financial assistance, we are currently reviewing applications and will be in contact soon.

Last year, PyCon UK was able to provide over £12000 as direct grants, and thousands more in free tickets, and we aim to do even better this year.

We welcome applications from all attendees, and strongly encourage you to apply if it would make it easier for you to attend. Many of your fellow attendees will be doing the same, including many speakers and even members of the conference organisation team.

Financial assistance includes free or discounted tickets, and funds to cover the costs of travel, accommodation and other expenses.

We'd love to be able to help all those who submit applications, but our funds are not unlimited, so we can't meet all requests. We do our best to maximise the impact of our financial assistance funding.Whoever you are, however, and whatever your needs, please do apply if we might be able to help you attend. Your application will be treated in complete confidence.

Thanks for applying. We hope we'll be able to help.

Financial assistance applications for 2019 are now closed

Apply for financial assistance

I’m Chloe. Last year, my financial situation meant that PyCon UK would have been difficult for me to afford considering my other expenses, so I applied for financial assistance.

It was great to have a free ticket provided so I could still attend. It was very easy, and I would highly recommend applying.
