Thank you for applying for an OKCon 2013 accommodation subsidy!
The final date to submit your request was Monday 12th August, 23:59:59 GMT. The selected applicants will be contacted by the end of August 2013.


We are glad to invite our attendees who haven’t been awarded a travel bursary and would benefit from a little help to join us at OKCon to apply for our Accommodation Subsidy Programme, providing a simple and basic accommodation solution for a price of 50 EUR per night.

Our accommodation subsidy offers:

  • a bed in a same-sex (women-only, men-only) dorm room (2-10 people) in an hostel in Geneva

  • for 3 nights, from Monday 16th September to Wednesday 18th September (please note that we will not be able to offer different dates)

  • at the price of 50 EUR per night (total for 3 nights: 150 EUR)

Because we are a community-driven, mostly volunteer-run event, OKCon ticket costs are not covered by the accommodation subsidies. If you are awarded an accommodation subsidy, you will be asked to purchase your ticket within the two following business days after you’ll have received our confirmation.

Who are the subsidies for?

These subsidies are intended for anybody who can make a significant contribution to the event, but who is not able take part without financial aid. Due to limited funds, we cannot give the subsidies to all applicants, so we will prioritise those who are already working to build the programme in some way (e.g. guest programme advisors, speakers, moderators) or who will otherwise make a significant contribution to OKCon. We will also prioritise those who demonstrate that they cannot make it to Geneva on their own without financial help and who applied for an OKCon 2013 travel bursary but were not selected in that process.

How to apply?

Please fill out the form that you will find on this page. The deadline for the applications is Monday 12th August, 23:59:59 GMT. Those applicants selected will have two business days to reply by e-mail to the offer and purchase their ticket (if not already done so) before the offer may be made to other qualified applicants.

How to claim your subsidy?

The detailed guidelines for claiming the subsidy will be provided with the confirmation email. You’ll be requested to pay the total amount of 150 EUR (50 EUR x 3 nights) by Friday, 30th August, 23:59:59 GMT.
