About the Award: OpenCon is the conference for students and early career academic professionals interested in advancing Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data. OpenCon is hosted by SPARC and the Right to Research Coalition.

OpenCon seeks to bring together effective, engaged students and early career academic professionals from around the world to advance Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data—regardless of their ability to pay for travel costs. In OpenCon’s first three years, most invited attendees who required financial support received full or partial scholarships to attend the conference. For this reason, attendance at OpenCon is by application only.

Type: Workshops/Conferences

Eligibility: Students and early career academic professionals of all experience levels are encouraged to apply. We want to support those who have ideas for new projects and initiatives in addition to those who are already leading them. The most important criteria is an interest in advancing Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data and a commitment to taking action.

Number of Awards: Not specified

Value of Award: The benefits of applying for OpenCon 2017 extend far beyond attending the meeting in Berlin this November. It’s an opportunity to find new collaborators, get connected with scholarships to attend related conferences, and actively participate in a larger community  of Open advocates year-round.
