Fwd: Travel assistance for GUADEC 2017

Hi GSoC and Outreachy students,

GUADEC[1], the annual GNOME conference is going to take place in
Manchester, UK this summer. Your mentor may have already mentioned it
to you, but if they have not, then I recommend you talk to them about
it now. GUADEC is an opportunity to share your work and collaborate
with other GNOME contributors, and to meet your mentors in person.

You will have an opportunity to present your work as one of the
lightning talk slots. Please put yourself down at
https://wiki.gnome.org/GUADEC/2017/Talks/Interns to sign up! If you're
at all unsure about presenting, I and all mentors are available to
discuss this with you :)

GUADEC is also a good time to plan any hackfests around your project.

At any rate, if you need financial help to attend GUADEC, you will
find most of the interesting information in the email below. Please
read all the instructions carefully before you submit a request. If in
doubt, feel free to ask me.

The GNOME Foundation can offer travel sponsorship to individuals who
want to attend GUADEC and need financial assistance.

We are happy to announce that the Travel Committee is processing
applications for sponsorships to attend to GUADEC 2017.

Application deadline: 2017-05-31. Send in your applications now, do
not wait until the deadline.

I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage you, and
especially soon-to-be-sponsored attendees, to volunteer during GUADEC
(you can sign up when registering).

The instructions for sponsorship applications are at

If you need a visa invitation letter, please also read:

Some additional comments:
* If you are offered help with accommodation, the Travel Committee
will book your accommodation. You should state that you need
accommodation, and leave the cost blank.
* Look for the most economical reasonable option (i.e. through a
service like kayak.com). If we find a cheaper price, that will be the
cost considered during the evaluation and you will make a kitten sad
because you didn't do your research properly.
* Any information you send to the Travel Committee will be private.
* Asking for sponsorship *does not* guarantee that you will be sponsored.
* A good application with good information will be processed faster.
* No personal emails. Keep travel-committee CCed on all of your
replies. Neglecting to do this will delay your application.
* How to get to Manchester: https://2017.guadec.org/travel/
* Preference will be given to Foundation members.
* Preference will be given to people presenting/organising talks,
BoFs, hackfests or workshops at GUADEC.
* Preference will be given to GSoC or Outreachy interns and mentors.
* The Travel committee should confirm that we have received your
application within 2-3 days. After that, we will process them
together. Regardless of whether your application is accepted or
rejected, you will always receive a response. If you have not received
a response by the 4th of June, please do follow up by email to
travel-committee gnome org
