Based upon generous donations to this point, including from the Campers of DSC/DevOps Camp 2018 and the readers of The PowerShell Conference Book, we will be able to offer a greater number of scholarships that originally anticipated. As a result, we will be awarding some of those immediately.
We hope this will give those recipients more time to prepare, and it will allow us to front-load some of our administrative tasks related to the scholarship. We will be contacting recipients on August 25 and 26 to confirm their participation. Please note that this is not the final, full slate of recipients; we will continue to accept applications until the original deadline of 1st November 2018. Any applications already received, which are not selected in this first round, remain very eligible for our originally planned slots. We are simply not making a decision on those original slots right now, and will do so according to the original schedule.
Again, this is an increase to the number of scholarships we are able to award, not a decrease. Our original slots remain available and will be awarded according to the original schedule.
