Paul Schenkeveld Travel Grant

In recognition of his accomplishments and in memory of his work and dedication to the BSD community, EuroBSDcon Foundation is offering a travel grant in his name.

Paul was one of the few – if not the only one – to have attended all EuroBSDcon conferences since their inception in 2001. Besides his many contributions to BSD in general and the EuroBSD conferences in particular, he established the EuroBSDcon Foundation in 2010 to ensure continuity for many more conferences.

If you are keen on attending this year’s conference and require financial support, please consider applying for this grant by filling out the contact form until 15th of June 2018, stating who you are, what you are doing with BSD, and why you should receive the grant.

The EuroBSDcon Foundation board will consider all valid submissions in its sole discretion and communicate its selection by end of June. The selected person will receive travel expense reimbursement and hotel accommodation during the conference as well as free entrance to the conference and social event.
