Time zone conversion troubles

Hi Shyamala -

I am so terribly sorry for the confusion. The calendar we used to convert the time zones was off by an hour when we converted to GMT. If it's any consolation, we recorded the session and will make sure you get a copy of that recording via email shortly.


the webinar recording is coming soon...

HI all,

Unfortunately, the webinar system did not convert to summer hours I'm afraid, so the timing was off by one hour. We greatly apologize for this and we are sending out the recording. If you have specific questions, feel free to email them to me and I can answer them for you. megan at association dot drupal dot org

It was an honor to be part of the webinar! Thanks for inviting me to speak!

My perspective was a bit different from the others because I spoke as a grantee, not as a grantor, so I tried to share my personal experiences.

The key idea to receive a Scholarship is to:

  • Provide clear objectives. Show your trajectory (as an individual and as a community): what's your background, why is it important for you to attend a DrupalCon, and what will be the outcomes from this opportunity?

  • Explain why you need financial assistance. Are you travelling from across the globe? Do you work as a freelancer and wouldn't be able to afford all expenses?

For more information about Scholarships, please see this nice page the Drupal Association has setup:


The webinar recording is now available
