Sorry for the delayed reply - the team has been in the thick of it running the three conferences!
Currently, we're set for Melbourne, but the Oxford event has a $25K financial aid gap. The gap is large because we're hoping to give aid to anyone who applied, requested aid, and was accepted. So, our criteria for dispensing financial aid is the same as our criteria for admission. (+ stated reasons why the person needs financial aid that are good reasons)
For the Google event, we had amazing support from the community in funding scholarships, so we're now raising round two. Would you still be interested?
ps Love the library cash stash idea. =)
