Linux Symposium

Community Travel Assistance Fund

We have established a Community Travel Assistance Fund to help those who should be at the Symposium but for reasons related to funding cannot attend without help.


I have opened a Paypal account for travel funding transfers and payments (this seems to be the best way to send money internationally without long delays). Contributions towards travel funding would be sent to via Paypal preferably as a 'Gift'.

Obtaining Support

  • Fund will be sent via Paypal to those who have been accepted after they arrive at the event venue and check-in. This is to reduce the potential for fraud and abuse.

  • The names of our contributors (unless otherwise requested) will be listed on the website on this page and contributions are welcome from both individuals and corporations.

  • To be eligible for an assistance grant you must be an active contributor to Linux or related Free Software projects.

  • The organizing committee will have the final say on allocation of funds to worthwhile individuals but anyone can apply at and please include details like your location and the projects you contribute to on a regular basis.

  • Contributors

    We would like to thank those who have contributed and encourage everyone (even if you cannot make it to the event) to do the same, even in a very small amount it will add up and make a real difference for someone.
