The Joomla! project is proud to announce the Joomla Event Travel Programme (JET), an initiative created to support active project volunteers and community members who have dedicated time and energy to make Joomla better, and who would like to attend larger Joomla events. The recipients of the first JET Programme recognition will have the cost of admission covered to the upcoming J and Beyond Conference on May 30 – June 1, 2014 in Königstein Germany, and will receive assistance with travel and lodging.

We invite anyone to apply who has actively contributed to Joomla through involvement in the community (by contributing code, participating in a translation team or a JUG, organising local events...) and requires financial assistance to attend the J and Beyond event.

Anyone who has contributed to the Joomla project in any way (www.joomla.org/about-joomla/contribute-to-joomla.html) during the past year is eligible to apply to the JET Programme.

 

Each application will be evaluated on a case-­by-­case basis and will be judged on its own merit. Because the number of recognitions, and the amount of money in the JET fund is limited, we will take into account criteria like the current involvement in the Joomla community (either locally or globally), the potential benefit to the Joomla project, or the overall participation in the Joomla! community.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, April 1, 2014 and all applicants will be notified by Tuesday, April 15, 2014. Applications must be completed by the interested person at http://events.joomla.org/jet-jab-2014.

Important Note: We are seeking volunteers in the Joomla! community to become part of the JET Committee team. The selected volunteers will review the applications for J and Beyond. If you have at least three hours per week to contribute to the Joomla project in the next two months, and you are interested in joining the team, please contact us at jet@opensourcematters.org.
