<br>A word about funding. While we wish we could fund every chapter leader, due to the limited amount of budget allocated for this event, we may not be able to fund 100% to all the requests.

When you apply for funding, please highlight your past contributions to OWASP and your future plans for the local chapter and OWASP.
 
  
<br>We will try to have an option to participate, via Skype or Webex, for those who cannot make it.
