Since welcoming the first Diversity Scholarship recipients in 2014, each year I look forward to meeting the new class of Scholars at MongoDB World.
As the conference grows, so does the scholarship award. This year, I’m excited to share that scholarship recipients located outside of the tristate area will also receive a complimentary 3-night hotel stay at the NY Hilton Midtown. We recognize the cost of a hotel room in New York City can be significant, and hope this removes another barrier that may prevent some applicants from attending.
In addition to a complimentary hotel stay, scholarship recipients get*:
- Complimentary admission to MongoDB World
- Complimentary admission to a workshop
- Invitation to a lunch session with other Scholars
- Speed mentoring with MongoDB speakers at the event
- A MongoDB certification voucher applicable for both developer and DBA certification exams
- Six-month access to on-demand MongoDB University courses
- Lifelong membership in the online MongoDB Diversity Scholars community
- A feature in a blog post
Members of underrepresented groups in tech** qualify to apply for a scholarship. Apply today. Hurry, the deadline is May 4.
We look forward to seeing your submissions and to meeting you at MongoDB World!
*Please note that travel is not included in the Diversity Scholarship.
** MongoDB’s Scholarship program seeks to support to members of groups who are underrepresented in the technology industry. This includes, but is not limited to, Black, LatinX, women, low-income, and LGBTQ.
