#536 Funding request for SAHIL SAREEN
Closed: Invalid None Opened 6 years ago by ssareen.

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 $Y.)
    approx. costs: Cabfare(~50$) , Airfare (~60$), Hotel stay(No idea~70$)

Total < 200$


Coming to conference

Cabfare to Bangalore airport = 800 INR[ about 45 kms + toll :( ]

Airfare - Bangalore to Pune = 1500-2000 INR

Cabfare from Pune airport to hotel = (No idea)

Going back home

Cabfare Hotel to Pune airport (No idea)

Airfare - Pune to Bangalore = 1500-2000 INR

Cabfare Bangalore to home = 800 INR

Hotel stay at Pune 26-28 (No idea, maybe 4000-5000 INR)

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful? (Yes/No?)

  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.

  • 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 primarily contribute to gnome-games, I'm looking to understand more projects and expand my scope of contributions from games to at least one core module.
    I am primarily interested in infrastructure, feature development talks/sessions.

  • 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 I found are these:

AirAsia I5-1424 Bangalore-Pune - Fri, 26 Jun`15

AirAsia I5-1425 Pune-Bangalore - Sun, 28 Jun`15

Total cost for these two flights right now is 3100 INR.

Airports = Bangalore, Pune

Any departure/arrival time are okay. No specific time restrictions.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

I am a gnome-foundation member[1] and contribute to gnome-games.
Right now I am also working on adding a new gnome infrastructure tool[4] to check gnome guidelines which would work as a wrapper on top of git.

Sahil, do you plan to propose a talk or workshop for the event? Getting a session accepted may increase your chances of getting funding. You can register and submit a session at http://fudcon.in.

Nope, I don't plan to give a talk/workshop.

Hello Sahil,

We regret to inform you that your request for the travel + accommodation subsidy has been declined.[1] We would not be able to help you this time. Hope it works out better next time.

Thank you.
