The recipients of the DrupalCon Chicago scholarships have been selected.
We received an incredible 105 scholarship applications for DrupalCon Chicago. After careful deliberation, the scholarship committee has decided to award scholarships to the people mentioned below.
This year the our evaluation process was merit-based. Applicants were evaluated based on their Drupal code contributions or contributions to the Drupal community. A special priority was given to core maintainers to celebrate their hard work on Drupal 7 and in anticipation of the discussions about Drupal 8 that will be featured in DrupalCon Chicago’s Core Conversations.
