Diversity Scholarship Program of JS Kongress 2020

Scaling JS — Pushing the Limits!

Why are we doing this?

Diversity Tickets give us the possibility to support someone who otherwise can’t be a part of the JS Kongress community. We are happy to have the opportunity to give a helping hand, as we have seen diversity tickets change the lives and careers of people in the community.

What is a Diversity Ticket

These tickets are made available for applicants either from underrepresented groups in tech or who do not have the means to finance the trip and participation. This includes, but is not limited to following examples: If you are a woman, or you are a person of color, or part of the LGBTQIA+ community, or you are a refugee, or you have any kind of handicap, or you are facing economic hardships — we want to invite you to be part of JS Kongress 2020.

The sanctity of applicant information

Applicant details and submission information will be shared exclusively with JS Kongress organizers for the purpose of the invitation. Diversity Sponsors and buyers of Support Tickets will not have access to applicant information.

How are fellows determined?

A limited number of tickets will be available (depending on the fund volume). The jury will thoroughly test each application to ensure it satisfies all requirements of the scholarship program before being added to a pool. Diversity Tickets will then be awarded via a lottery system. One submission per applicant is sufficient to maintain eligibility.

What does a Diversity Ticket include?

Diversity Tickets are full conference tickets, they include:

  • attending the complete main stage program
  • participation in #DeepTrack, the unconference where all participants create the program
  • food and drinks during the event (breakfast, hot lunch, coffee breaks, party on the first evening)
  • admission to the parties organized for the conference attendees, speakers, partners and staff
  • optional / depending on fund volume: support for travel and accommodation (up to €300)

Want to support this Diversity Program?

We are currently opening the #jskongress Diversity Fund — tickets will be awarded at the end of November 2020.

A huge “thank you” goes to our first Diversity Sponsors for their support!

First of all, everyone — attendee, speaker, sponsor, and volunteer, as well as the team members — at the JS Kongress, have to agree to the Code of Conduct. You agree to comply by purchasing a ticket as well as by attending. Also, the organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.
