diversity scholarship program

Following in the major success of last year's inaugural DockerCon Diversity Scholarship program, we are excited to announce the relaunch of the program for DockerCon 2017. DockerCon is the hub for our community, bringing together members from all parts of our growing ecosystem and the globe. To continue our efforts to ensure DockerCon is an inclusive event for our entire community, Docker wants to ensure members of underrepresented groups have the the opportunity to attend DockerCon without the barrier of financial strain.

The Diversity Scholarship Program aims to provide support and guidance to members of the Docker community who are traditionally underrepresented through on-site mentorship and a scholarship to attend DockerCon Austin.

Application Process:
The application process includes completing one of the five self paced courses along with the scholarship application form. Here are the steps to apply:

Step 1
Complete at least one of the five self-paced courses offered at docker.com/training. These five courses are intended for both Dev and Ops beginner and intermediate level Docker users. Select which course you feel best fits you.

Step 2
After you've finished one of the five courses, complete the application here. Note, you will need to provide proof of completion so either take a screenshot of your certificate or email notification.

If you have any issues providing proof of completion, let us know.
