As part of Code4Lib's ongoing commitment to reducing economic barriers and ensuring balanced representation from underrepresented groups, we are pleased to announce that we are now seeking applicants for our 2024 Diversity Scholarship program. The Code4Lib Scholarship Committee seeks to award several Diversity Scholarships based on merit and need. Domestic applicants (in the United States and Canada) can receive up to $1,500 USD, while international applicants can be awarded up to $3,000 USD. These funds are intended to cover travel expenses, hotel accommodations, and conference fees for the 2024 Code4Lib Conference in Ann Arbor, MI. The deadline for applications is DATE TO BE DETERMINED, 2024, 11:59 PM EST.

Scholarship recipients will have their conference registration and hotel accommodations covered upfront. Other incidentals, like local transportation and meals, may be reimbursed depending on the awarded amount. Reimbursements will be processed at the conference. Additionally, there is an option to share accommodations with fellow scholarship awardees or other conference attendees. For inquiries about these arrangements, please contact code4libaward@gmail.com. Our goal is to ensure that financial concerns do not discourage anyone from applying.

We do not expect scholarship recipients to be responsible for being an ambassador for their group or an educator of others during the conference. While learning and exchange may happen as a result of interactions between participants, scholarship recipients are encouraged to focus on getting the most out of their experience and have no special duties or obligations apart from conference attendance, engaged participation to their comfort level, and giving us feedback on their experience.

About Code4Lib

Code4Lib seeks to maintain a vibrant and diverse community of technology-minded folks. We are developers and technologists for libraries, museums, and archives who have a strong commitment to open technologies. Code4Lib began as a simple mailing list in 2003 and held its first face-to-face meeting in 2005 in Chicago. The first official annual conference was held in 2006 in Corvallis, Oregon. Nowadays, the Code4Lib community gravitates around the same listserv, an annual conference with hundreds of attendees, as well as IRC and Slack channels that are open for anyone to join. We are dedicated to being a diverse and inclusive community of technologists seeking to share ideas and build collaboration. You can read our Code of Conduct here.

Code4Lib 2024 Conference Registration Details

Conference registration spots and hotel rooms are being held for scholarship recipients. If your attendance is dependent upon receiving a scholarship, you do not need to register for the conference or book a hotel room when registration opens. Code4Lib will facilitate both your registration and hotel arrangements. Should you choose to handle your own conference registration and/or hotel booking, these costs, along with other expenses as detailed in the call for applicants, will be reimbursed within the parameters of the award. Reimbursement for these expenses will be provided to scholarship recipients at the conference.
