MongoDB Diversity Scholarship

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.local SF and MongoDB Europe.

MongoDB’s Scholarship program seeks to provide support to members of groups who are underrepresented in the technology industry. This includes Black, LatinX, women, people with disabilities, people from low-income backgrounds, and individuals from the LGBTQ community.

Award

Scholarship recipients will receive:

  • Complimentary admission to MongoDB.local SF or MongoDB Europe
  • Complimentary admission to a pre-conference 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
  • Three-month access to on-demand MongoDB University courses
  • Lifelong membership in the online MongoDB Diversity Scholars community
  • A feature in a blog post

Note: Scholarship recipients are responsible for their travel and lodging costs.

Eligibility

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.

Application

Deadlines for the MongoDB Scholarship application are listed below:

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.
