DrupalCon Austin 2014 Grant and Scholarship Recipients Have Been Selected

Apr 15

We’re pleased to announce that the grant and scholarship recipients for DrupalCon Austin 2014 have been selected and finalized!

Thanks to generosity from our sponsors, we were able to extend offers of financial aid to 33 individuals worldwide!

There were over 100 applicants for financial aid for DrupalCon Austin, and selecting the best candidates for the convention was difficult work. Every candidate underwent a comprehensive evaluation by a committee of volunteers from the Drupal community.

The selection criteria for applicants seeking grants focused on the importance of the candidate to the Drupal project and code as a whole. Scholarships, meanwhile, were awarded based on the impact or influence on the Drupal community and Drupal adoption that the person would have at their home region— though these were just a few of the many factors taken into account during the selection process.

We’d like to offer a big congratulations to our DrupalCon Austin 2014 Grant & Scholarship recipients! Way to go!
