Information from OpenStreetMap

The State of the Map conference is the annual, international conference of OpenStreetMap (OSM), organised by the OpenStreetMap Foundation. All OSM enthusiasts are invited to the gathering in Cape Town, from 3 to 5 July 2020 to share experiences and ideas on advancing the OSM ecosystem.

To enable as many of participants as possible to be part of State of the Map 2020, OSM is providing financial support with the help of its sponsors. This year the organisation is offering new travel grants to reimburse a portion of travel costs, in addition to its previous program that fully covers all costs with a full scholarship.

Recipients of grants are expected to participate at the State of the Map, either through a presentation (if selected by the program committee), or in lightning talk sessions. There are other ways to participate and support the operations of the conference while you attend too.

Applications for support close on 15 February 2020. For more information and tips in completing your application, visit https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/01/18/sotm2020-applications-for-scholarships-open/
