Webstock is delighted to be able to offer some full scholarships to our main conference. If you win a scholarship you can:
- attend the two days of the conference proper
- hang out at the sit-down dinner and festivities on the closing night
- network and mingle with web professionals from all over NZ
- enjoy all the other assorted goodies of Webstock.
We realise that not everyone can afford Webstock. But we want to spread our message and the Webstock experience widely. We see the scholarships as one way to do that, as well as to support and encourage future web talent.
The scholarships are aimed at those who might otherwise be unable to afford Webstock, and at those who are under-represented in our industry.
What we pay for
We cover the registration fee for the Webstock Conference. Note that if you wish to attend any workshops, you will need to pay for these yourself.
What you pay for
Travel to Wellington and accommodation costs are your responsibility.
Present a case to us that you’d benefit from attending Webstock. Factors that will help your application are that you would otherwise struggle to attend and/or that you may be from a group in society that is under-represented in the industry.
Applications will be entirely decided upon by the Webstock organisers. Our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. We’ll let you know if you succeed or fail in your application.
Applicants ordinarily resident in New Zealand or the South Pacific will be preferred.
Applications are open now and close 4pm Friday 3rd November, 2007.
How to apply
Send us an email! A plain text email telling us why you’d benefit from the scholarship. Feel free to link to any supporting material, but the email is what counts.
