Switzerland can be expensive for people visiting from abroad. ZuriHac
is a free event, but transportation, lodging, and food might discourage
somebody without a good income from attending. We want to make it
easier for anyone to come, and contribute towards making the Haskell
community exciting and diverse.
For that reason, we will provide a small number of scholarships.
Because we do not charge anything for tickets, our budget
is limited, so we'll distribute them on a first come, first serve basis.
Anybody accepted will be supported with an amount between 100.-
and 500.- Swiss Francs, depending on your expenses.
Our focus is on people with limited financial means and underrepresented
groups in tech -- the latter includes, but is not limited to: people of
colour, anyone identifying as LGBTQIA+, women, and disabled people.
You can apply by sending an email to
[email protected], and
tell us why are you are interested in joining the event and how a
scholarship would help?
Don't write an essay, a couple of sentences are enough :)
After we confirm your scholarship, please book your transport and
accomodation, and send us the receipts and IBAN information for the
wire transfer. Once we get your receipts, we'll wire you the money.
We will not disclose the recipients of these scholarships, in order to
protect their privacy. The amount you estimate for your expenses will
not be a factor when we consider your application.
Don't be shy and just contact us if you feel that this can make a
difference to you. There is no downside to applying, and we will never
disclose your identity.
