Registration Details

Registration spots and hotel rooms are being held for scholarship recipients. If you can attend only if you receive a scholarship, there is no need to register for the conference or book a hotel room when registration opens. Code4Lib will assist you with both registration and hotel arrangements; however, if you register for the conference or book a hotel room, you will be reimbursed along with other expenses. Reimbursement for expenses will be provided to recipients during the conference.

How to Apply

Applications for diversity scholarships are not currently being collected. When we are accepting applications, this site will detail what is required.

Diversity Scholarships Angel Fund

As part of the Code4Lib community's ongoing commitment to helping under-represented groups excel in computing and technology, we offer multiple scholarships to attend the annual conference. In addition to seeking organization sponsors for scholarships, we accept donations from individuals who would like to support the scholarship program. Individual donors will be thanked on the Scholarship page, though anonymous donation is also possible. All funds raised will help pay for transportation, accommodation, and conference registration costs for Code4Lib's Diversity Scholarships recipients for our annual conference.

Matching Funds are a great way to raise Diversity Scholarship funds and to double your donation’s impact! The organization(s) listed below have generously pledged to match your donations once a Matching Fund goal is reached.
