Calling all FreeBSD developers needing assistance with travel expenses to EuroBSDCon 2013.

The FreeBSD Foundation will be providing a limited number of travel grants to individuals requesting assistance. Please fill out and submitthe Travel Grant Request Application by August 19th, 2013 to apply for this grant. Instructions can be found in the announcement.

This program is open to FreeBSD developers, kernel hackers,documentation authors, bugbusters, and system administrators, etc.In somecases, we are also able to fund non-developers, such as active community members and FreeBSD advocates.

If you are a speaker at the conference, we expect the conference to cover your travel costs, and will most likely not approve your direct request to us.

The travel grant program is one of the most effective ways we can spend money to help support the FreeBSD Project, as it helps developers get together in the same place at the same time, and helps advertise and advocate FreeBSD in the larger community.
