#553 Funding request for Marie Nordin (riecatnor)
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by riecatnor.

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.)
    Hotel, whatever is cost efficient for organizers.

Visa $60

Travel $1,684 for flight from Rochester, NY to Mumbai, India

Taxi from Mumbai to Pune w/ other travelers $?

  • 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.)
    My main objective for FUDcon is to educate other Fedorans about Fedora Badges, specifically how to design and create badge artwork. I have submitted a workshop on how to create Fedora Badges, which if I present will help to include more of the community in the project. Fedora Badges is currently hoping to attract new design mentees, and this would be a great chance for me(I am mentoring) to establish a relationship with these individuals. I would like to meet potential badge designers, acquaint them with the project and set them up to make badges. Attending FUDcon will also allow me to connect and interact with other Fedora contributors, learn new things and promote Fedoras international community.

  • 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.
    UA3742, UA936, LX154
    Arrive 9:40pm

Flights: UA49, UA4859
Depart 11:20pm

These flight plans are the cheapest I can find for the approximate dates, I am flexible with departure and arrival airports and times.

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

Yes I will need a visa, which I have read can take up to two weeks. Information about what visa to obtain, and the best method to apply would be helpful.
I will also be renewing my passport which takes about a month.

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

Hello Marie

We regret to inform you that your request for the travel subsidy has been declined.[1] We would not be able to help you this time. In case if you could arrange for travel, we could provide you with a shared accommodation for the duration of the conference. Hope it works out better next time.

Thank you.
