Scholarships &
Volunteer & Work-Trade Program

PyBay offers two different ways to help the conference and get either a free or discounted ticket to attend - 1) Scholarships and 2) Volunteer & Work-Trade program. Please read on to learn about each one.

PyBay couldn't happen without the strong support of our Sponsors. However, even with their generosity, many people aren't able to attend PyBay without the backing of our generous Scholarship Partners.

PyBay Volunteer & Work-Trade Program

PyBay relies on a large continent of volunteers before, during and after the conference to make the magic happen.
This year, our Volunteer & Work-Trade program works like this:
-First, you sign up and purchase a PyBay ticket and then volunteer through our official signup (link being developed now).
-Secondly, once PyBay is over and the leadership team has confirmed you have completed all of your volunteer obligations, PyBay will refund your credit card for the agreed upon amount.
