Financial Hardship Scholarships — Layers 2017

Scholarships are now available for the Layers design conference in San Jose, June 5–7, 2017. Apply by May 7 to be eligible for a free pass to the event.

The requirements are as follows:

  • You would otherwise not be able to afford attending this conference.
  • You love design, particularly UI/application design.
  • You are able to make accommodations to travel to and stay in San Jose June 5–7, 2017.

If you fit all of these requirements, please send us a short essay telling us about yourself. What are you working on now? What is your dream job? What excites you most about coming to Layers? Do you belong to a group that you feel is currently underrepresented in this industry?

There are currently several spots available for this scholarship, with the possibility of more opening up as more donations come in. Please send your applications to scholarships@layers.is by Sunday, May 7. Scholarship recipients will be notified the week of May 8.

If you’re interested in donating to the Layers scholarship fund, you can do so on our website. Any amount helps.
