SciPy 2021 will continue the tradition of offering scholarships to attend the conference. These scholarships can provide funding for airfare, lodging, and conference registration.
SciPy 2021 has committed to offering 50% of this year's scholarships to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Scholarships are open to both community members and students.
Please read our full statement of support for the Black Community here.
SciPy 2021 Applications
Applications will be judged both on merit as well as need. Although all attendees are eligible for scholarships, we encourage applicants to consider their level of need before applying, such as whether their institution is covering some or all of their travel costs. As funds are limited, our goal is to bring together as many SciPy community members as possible. If only partial scholarship is required, please indicate this in the application and we may be able to accommodate additional applicants due to such reasonable requests.
The Financial Aid Committee welcomes international applicants. You will be responsible for your own visa application, but the conference is happy to provide any letters of support or additional documentation you may need. We will work with you to secure your hotel and flights, as needed. The conference will ensure that you are not financially impacted in any way for travel expenses if you are unable to obtain a visa and attend the conference.
The application deadline is March 19, 2021. Recipients will be notified on April 2nd, 2021.
