Gender diversity grants for women to attend PyCon Australia 2012

The PyCon AU organisers write:

PyCon Australia and Google Australia are pleased to announce that they’re joining forces to offer gender diversity delegate grants to women who wish to attend PyCon Australia in 2012. These grants will cover up to $AUD500 of travel, accommodation and registration costs for women living outside of the Southern Tasmania region to attend this year’s conference.

These grants aim to reduce the financial barriers to attending PyCon Australia 2012, by subsidising the registration and travel costs of people from diverse groups, who contribute in important ways to the Python community.

The deadline for applications is June 22, and the conference will be held August 18 & 19, Hobart, Tasmania.
