To help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups in technology from attending our conferences, we're excited to offer a Scholarship for MongoDB World.
MongoDB’s Scholarship program seeks to provide support to members of groups who are underrepresented in the technology industry. This includes, but is not limited to, Black, LatinX, women, people with disabilities, people from low-income backgrounds, and individuals from the LGBTQ community.
Scholarship recipients will receive:
- Complimentary admission to MongoDB World or MongoDB.local London
- Complimentary admission to a workshop of your choice (if applicable)
- 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
- Scholarship recipients who reside outside the tri-state area will receive a reimbursement for the cost of their hotel stay
Note: Scholarship recipients are responsible for their travel costs.
Applicants must be 18 years old or older, and must belong to a group that is underrepresented in the technology industry. This includes Black, LatinX, women, people with disabilities, people from low-income backgrounds, and individuals from the LGBTQ community.
Deadlines for the MongoDB Scholarship application are listed below:
- MongoDB.local London: August 25, 2019
- MongoDB World 2020: February 28, 2020
The scholarship is closed for MongoDB World 2019. Apply now for 2020.
Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Selection will be made by a committee that will review each application. All application info will be kept confidential. All applicants will be notified of their application's status approximately three weeks pre-event. Winners will receive additional information on how to register for the conference.
