EDDI 2018 - Diversity Scholarships

In this year, EDDI can offer diversity scholarships as we aim to increase the diversity within the conference, especially among the speakers. The program is open to women, minorities, or any other underrepresented group. It covers travel and hotel expenses (but not the registration fee).

In case of interest, please write an email to

  • Knut Wenzig (kwenzig@diw.de) by September 30, 2018.
  • Notifications will be sent out at October 9, 2018.

Your application should contain:

  1. A short text in essay form (up to 500 words) on why you want to attend the event and what you will gain from attending. Tell us also something about your experience as a member of an underrepresented group in tech.
  2. The group(s) you identify with (this includes, but is not limited to people identifying as women, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, LGBTQ, and/or people with disabilities.)
  3. A bio sketch (tell us about yourself)
