To all committers and non-committers. This is a final call to apply for travel/hotel assistance to get to and stay in New Orleans for ApacheCon 2022.
Applications have been extended by one week and so the application deadline is now the 8th July 2022. The rest of this email is a copy of what has been sent out previously. We will be supporting ApacheCon North America in New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 3rd through 6th, 2022. TAC exists to help those that would like to attend ApacheCon events, but are unable to do so for financial reasons. This year, We are supporting both committers and non-committers involved with projects at the Apache Software Foundation, or open source projects in general. For more info on this year's applications and qualifying criteria, please visit the TAC website at http://www.apache.org/travel/ Applications have been extended until the 8th of July 2022. Important: Applicants have until the closing date above to submit their applications (which should contain as much supporting material as required to efficiently and accurately process their request), this will enable TAC to announce successful awards shortly afterwards. As usual, TAC expects to deal with a range of applications from a diverse range of backgrounds. We therefore encourage (as always) anyone thinking about sending in an application to do so ASAP. Why should you attend as a TAC recipient? We encourage you to read stories from past recipients at https://apache.org/travel/stories/ . Also note that previous TAC recipients have gone on to become Committers, PMC Members, ASF Members, Directors of the ASF Board and Infrastructure Staff members. Others have gone from Committer to full time Open Source Developers! How far can you go! - Let TAC help get you there. === Gavin McDonald on behalf of the Travel Assistance Committee.
