West Coast Number Theory aims to be a conference with minimal barriers to participation. As such, we try to ensure that financial pressures are not a barrier to your attendance, even if the conference is virtual.
If there are barriers that might prevent you from participating in this event (e.g. “kids”) and a small (< $200) grant could help remove those barriers, then please send a message to the organizers outlining your request, answering the following questions: “how much” and “how will it help.”
Examples of proposals might include:
- Childcare expenses
- rental of a co-work / quiet space
Please bear in mind that only a limited amount of funding is available.
Note that one of the conditions of accepting funding is that you should attend the whole conference. If this is an issue, please contact us and let us know your concerns.
