Apply for a travel stipend for Coolest Projects North America

We can help you get to Southern California to showcase your project.

If you’re a kid in North America and you’re making something cool with technology, you can now apply for a stipend to help offset the cost to travel to Southern California for Coolest Projects.


As you might have heard, Coolest Projects is coming to North America in September. It’s an opportunity for young people aged 7 to 17 to showcase the things that they create with technology. Whether you’re in a Code Club, in a Dojo, the student of a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, or a part of our Jam community, we want to see you and your project at the Discovery Cube Orange County in Santa Ana, California on September 23.


Traveling to the Golden State can cost a pretty penny but we don’t expect you to hitchhike from Houston. Thanks to a generous grant from Broadcom Foundation, we’re providing travel stipends for eligible young people to come to Coolest Projects from afar. If you want to be considered for a Coolest Projects travel stipend, just register your project and then apply for a travel stipend using this form.


There’s just a few important things you should know. This stipend is intended for young people who otherwise would not be able to attend the event. In order to be eligible for a travel stipend you must be present and showcasing a project at Coolest Projects North America on September 23, 2018 at the Discovery Cube Orange County in Santa Ana, California. The stipend application is open until 11:59 p.m. PDT July 31, 2018. And even though we wish we could, we’re not able to cover 100% of the cost of everyone’s travel.


If you’re on the fence about applying for a travel stipend, I want you to know that Disneyland is just 10 minutes away. What better way to celebrate your achievement than a ride down Splash Mountain after eating a massive turkey leg and a Dole Whip, right?


Of course if you just want to come to Coolest Projects and see what the kids are showcasing, free tickets are available here. We’ll see you in Southern California!
