Subject: Travel assistance applications to attend GNOME.Asia 2013
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.gnome.foundation.announce
Date: Sunday 24th March 2013 17:50:37 UTC (over 3 years ago)
The GNOME Foundation <http://www.gnome.org/foundation/>
provides travel
sponsorships to individuals who want to attend GNOME.Asia 2013 and need
financial assistance.

We are happy to announce the Travel Committee<https://live.gnome.org/Travel> is
ready to receive applications for sponsorships to attend GNOME.Asia 2013.
This year, GNOME.Asia 2013 is being held in NIPA Business Center,
Sangam-dong Seoul, Korea on May 24 -25, 2013

The instructions are detailed at http://live.gnome.org/Travel
Please read them carefully.

Deadline: Mar 29, 2013, 19:00 UTC.  You can start sending in your
applications now!

Some extra comments:
* Any information you send to the Travel Committee will be private.

* Asking for sponsorship *does not* guarantee you will get sponsored.

* A good application with good information will be processed fast.

* If you need help with accommodation, you should state in your application
that you need lodging, and leave the cost blank.

* Always choose the most economical option when possible.  People who need
travel sponsorship, should look for the best price (i.e. through a service
like kayak.com).  If the Travel Committee finds a cheaper price, that will
be the price considered during the evaluation.

* Preference would be given to speakers, Foundation members, GSOC students,
Women Outreach Program interns and active contributors.

* If your country needs a VISA invitation letter and you are a GNOME
contributor, please let the GNOME Travel committee know about it.

* If you are selected for the Google Summer of Code or the GNOME Outreach
Program for Women (as student or mentor) you should mention it in your
application.

* If your talk was selected for GNOME.Asia 2013, you should mention it in
your application.

* The Travel committee should reply back about receiving your application
within 2-3 days. After that we would accumulate all the sponsorship
requests and process them together. So please do not panic (have any
butterflies in your stomach) if we take some time to reply on the status.
Affirmative/Negative you would surely get a response.

* No personal emails to committee members. Please keep travel-committee
Cc’ed on all your replies.

Feel free to ask questions on the travel-committee list. You can also find
us in the #travel channel at irc.gnome.org

Regards,
Bharath
