Funding to Attend Workshop

If you need financial assistance to attend the Chapter Leader Workshop at AppSec Asia, please submit a request to Tin Zaw and Sarah Baso by September 15, 2011.

Funding for your attendance to the workshop should be worked out in the following order.

  1. Ask your employer to fund your trip to AppSec Asia in Beijing, China.
  2. Utilize your chapter funds.
  3. Ask the chapter committee for funding assistance.

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. After September 15, we will make funding decision in a fair and transparent manner. When you apply for funding, please highlight your past contributions to OWASP and your future plans for the local chapter and OWASP.
