useR! 2019 is proud to propose a diversity scholarship program. The program aims at providing a financial help to members of underrepresented or historically marginalized groups in the R community who may not otherwise be able to attend our conference for financial reasons. We would like to thank Julien Cornebise and Jo-Fai Chow who gave up their invited grants for the diversity scholarship fund.

Our target is to award as many scholarships as our funding allows, providing recipients full access to the conference.

The useR! 2019 Diversity Scholarship committee will review applications based on eligibility, need and impact. The useR! 2019 diversity scholarship will include:

  • A grant for travel and subsistence (reimbursement based on invoice after the participation to the conference)
  • A free registration ticket for the conference (including tutorials and Gala dinner)

Application and timeline

Applications should be made by submitting this form before March 1st. We anticipate that the form will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Applicants must:

  • belong to an underrepresented or historically marginalized group,
  • be over 18 years old at the date of application,
  • have not received a scholarship to attend useR! 2018.
Precise conditions of refund are provided in this document.

There is no geographical restriction.

See Forwards Tips for Diversity Scholarships for advice on completing the form. R-Ladies may receive a volunteer review of their application by submitting it through this form at least 3 weeks before the deadline.

Applications will be evaluated by a committee with representatives from Forwards, R-Ladies and rOpenSci. All application information will be available only for the diversity scholarship committee and will be kept strictly confidential. Data will be deleted after scholarships have been paid out according to Forwards privacy policy.
