Travel bursaries/stipends

With the generous support of our sponsors, we are thrilled to be able to offer travel bursaries/stipends

Travel bursary/stipends are financial need–based awards that do not have to be repaid. The aim of providing travel funding is to help offset travel costs associated with Coolest Projects events, covering travel expenses such as flights, car mileage, train tickets, and overnight accommodation.

To be eligible for a travel bursary/stipend, you must be:

  • Attending and showcasing a project at the Coolest Projects events associated with the bursary/stipend
  • A member of a Code Club, CoderDojo, or Raspberry Jam

Our team at the the Raspberry Pi Foundation will select recipients of the bursaries/stipends from among all applicants.

We will take into account many factors including need, geographic location, community contribution, and our goal to welcome a diverse group of participants.
