Interested in coming to TCamp? Need some financial assistance to get here? We can help!
By now, dear follower of Sunlight, you are probably well aware that TransparencyCamp (our annual unconference that brings together folks interested in government transparency) is happening on May 30-31st. To ensure that diverse voices and communities are represented, we will once again provide a travel scholarship open to participants from across the country.
We are looking for civic innovators and organizers — people with ideas or projects that apply transparency locally, nationally or internationally. Whether your opengov advocacy or tinkering is part of your day job or falls outside of your 9-to-5, we believe you have something important to share, learn and build along with every other attendee at TransparencyCamp — even if you don’t have the means to make it all the way out to Washington, D.C. on your own. That’s why, for the last two years, we’ve provided this scholarship and partial travel stipend, and why we’re bringing it back for TransparencyCamp 2014.
People that have experience working on municipal or state transparency issues, interest in open data on a community level and civic hackers of all stripes are highly encouraged to apply. First time coming to TCamp? Check out our Ambassadors Program, or take a look at the top 10 things to know about TCamp 2014. See you there!
