Scholarship and Volunteering

Are you a part of an underrepresented group in tech? Finances a bit overwhelming? For every conference, we have a couple of scholarship tickets available. Read more the requirements below and how to apply.

Or maybe you’d like to help us out during the days and apply as a volunteer! This way you get to see some talks, experience a workshop, and get to look behind the scenes!

We also have discounts for students and non-profits available.

Scholarship Tickets

The audience at SmashingConf

We are providing support in the form of free tickets for underrepresented individuals in tech.

Anyone from an underrepresented group in tech is invited to apply for a scholarship. We especially invite and welcome LGBTQIA+ people, people with disabilities, and people facing economic or social hardships to apply for a scholarship.

If you’re are selected, you will receive a conference ticket, and like all other attendees, you’re invited to all side-events too.

You will receive an email if you have been selected at least one month before the conference.
The scholarship does not cover travel and accommodation.

Volunteering for SmashingConf

Volunteers at SmashingConf

Maybe you have a small budget, or maybe you’d like to get a more behind-the-scenes experience of SmashingConf. Why not apply as a volunteer? We are always looking for capable individuals to help us out!

If you would like to participate, you will be helping us out during the workshop and conference days, with tasks such as handing out badges, showing people the way, and answering questions.

Of course, you’ll also be able to watch a couple of talks during the conference. On the first workshop day, you’ll be able to enjoy bits of one of the workshops. On the second workshop day, you’ll be able to attend an entire workshop of your choice.

We’ll let you know two months in advance if you’re selected as a volunteer.
Transport and accommodation are not included.
