In 2019, one JAlba participant had to cancel at the last minute, but generously donated her entry, her accommodation, and part of her travel costs in order to allow someone to come who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to, especially if they were from a background under-represented in tech. The success of this excellent idea inspired us to suggest to everyone that they consider contributing to a scholarship scheme. Please give what you can! (Note: we’ll refund any part of scholarship donations that aren’t used for any reason.)
