Every year we hear from people who would like to attend SAINTCON, but are unable to afford the entry costs. This year we are instituting a scholarship program which will provide access to the conference to a limited number of people who quality.
To ensure that these scholarships are awarded to individuals who can benefit from them the most, we are placing the following eligibility requirements on those who are apply:
All applicants are required to submit an essay of no more than 2000 words illustrating how a scholarship to SAINTCON would benefit them. Applicants are encouraged to be creative, but all information in the essay must be truthful and reflective of the applicant's own circumstances. We encourage you to discuss your goals, future plans, and how you might contribute to the security community.
All submissions are required to include the following information:
Upon receipt, we will review all applications and make awards to those who members of the SAINTCON committee feel are most deserving. Successful applicants will be notified soon after the submission deadline. The number of scholarships will be determined at the time of making awards, and is subject to a number of factors. We anticipate awarding around 20 scholarships, but that number could increase if funding allows.
