Travel Scholarships

If you are a maintainer that is unable to come to KubeCon for financial reasons (such as corporate travel pullback) please apply for the Dan Kohn Travel Scholarship ( This is here for us to grow as well as maintain the community that we have. Maintainers have made KubeCon what it is, and it is not the same event without you there.

Personal note from Jeefy: Never feel bad asking for help. It’s the least the CNCF can do given the hard work and community building you all do.

In-person applications close Sunday, September 3 (11:59 PM Pacific Time)
