Please set the "Component" below to the correct event for your request.
Tell us the following:
- What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y)
I need round-trip flight ticket from PRN - VIE - MIL/MXP around 330$ Which can be booked in Orbitz.net and 4 nights for an Economy Room for 207 EUR at Hotel Perugino recommended on the wiki as the cheapest and nearest hotel from the venue.
- If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)
No, I unfortunately can't afford to pay for the flight ticket and hotel.
- What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)
I've joined Fedora Project officially in October, 2010 as Fedora Ambassador, my focus currently as an young Free Software activist is promotion, due to that I've organized more than 3 successful release parties so far as an ambassador. I've done most of the work before (such as media self-production and swag printing) and after (event reporting). I know that this is nothing compared to what other contributors have done, so that's the reason why I want to participate in Fedora-organized event to get inspired by experienced contributors in same time learn by them on how to push forward Fedora by listening to talks which will be presented there. I am not currently capable to present any topic but surely will join discussions and share my ideas for a better future. My first event being sponsored was FOSDEM 2011 and I think I deserve in one way or another to get sponsored for the trip based on my soever contribution I made online and offline.
- If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.
The cheapest round-trip flight I saw online was with Austrian from PRN - VIE - MXP (Thu 29-Sep-11) and MXP - VIE - PRN (Mon 3-Oct-11) The depart flight number from PRN to VIE is: 778 at 12:45 pm - 2:30 pm, VIE to MXP is: 513 at 3:20 pm - 4:50 pm. Comeback flight number from MXP to VIE is: 514 at 5:40 pm - 7:15 pm, VIE to PRN is: 769 at 8:20 pm - 10:05 pm.
- Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?
I live in Prishtina, Kosovo and I need a visa to go in Milan, Italy. Usually the procedure for short stay visit doesn't take long (4-5 more or less) but I have to apply 30 days before the trip. I will need original invitation paper to attach together with other documents needed for application.
- Include any additional, relevant information.
I am under 18, exactly 16 years old born in 22th of October, 1994. My parents will allow me to come in Milan.
