Apply Now for the TransparencyCamp Travel Scholarship

TransparencyCamp is an annual unconference by the Sunlight Foundation that brings together folks interested in government transparency. TCamp 2014 is happening on May 30-31st. To ensure that diverse voices and communities are represented, they will once again provide a travel scholarship open to participants from across the country.


The Sunlight Foundation is looking for civic innovators and organizers—people with ideas or projects that apply transparency locally, nationally or internationally. Whether your opengov advocacy or tinkering is part of your day job or falls outside of your 9-to-5, they believe you have something important to share, learn, and build along with every other attendee at TransparencyCamp—even if you don’t have the means to make it all the way out to Washington, D.C. on your own. That’s why, for the last two years, they’ve provided this scholarship and partial travel stipend, and why they’re bringing it back for TransparencyCamp 2014.

People that have experience working on municipal or state transparency issues, interest in open data on a community level, and civic hackers of all stripes are highly encouraged to apply.
