Webstock benefits hugely from a diversity of attendees and perspectives. Everything does, right.

With that in mind, we’re offering 10 full scholarships to the main Webstock conference on 16-17 February 2017.

If you’re someone who’d love to attend Webstock, from a group that’s under-represented in the spaces in which Webstock intersects – technology, design, business or culture – or if you’re someone without the financial means to pay for a ticket, we’d love to hear from you. We’re keen to hear why you’d love to come, what you’d get out of the experience, and why you are a deserving scholarship recipient.

To apply, please send us an application at [email protected].

Applications close at 5pm on Monday 12 December. Applicants will be informed of the outcome by Friday 16 December at the latest.

The fine print

  • Scholarships cover the cost of full conference registration.
  • They are open to people of any age.
  • Applications should be no more than (the equivalent of) two pages. PDF, email, shared online doc are all welcome.
  • If you’ve received a free ticket to Webstock previously, you are not eligible. Sorry, but we want to share things around.
  • If you’re from a company or organisation that really should be covering your attendance costs, you’ll probably have a harder time convincing us.
  • If you’re living outside of New Zealand, you’re very welcome to apply.
  • We won’t be publicising who has won a scholarship, but be assured that you’ll be made extremely welcome at Webstock and will receive numerous high fives from the Webstock team at the event for being a scholarship winner.
  • Scholarships cover registration to the main Webstock conference. If you wish to attend a workshop also, you will need to pay for that. All costs associated with travelling to Webstock and accommodation whilst at Webstock will be your responsibility.
