PyCon Pittsburgh. April 15-23, 2020.

Refund policy for Attendees & Financial Aid recipients traveling internationally

International travel to the United States has become a greater risk for many in our community. In light of current conditions, PyCon would like to highlight the support we provide for international travelers. If you are travelling internationally to PyCon, take note of the following information. Financial Aid applicants should take note of additional information specific to that process in the second section.

For All International Travellers to PyCon

In order to better assist our international community, we have the following refund policy for all attendees of PyCon:

Please note the above policy applies to attendees not traveling to or from OFAC sanctioned countries only. In the event that you have a refund request or questions, please contact our registration team.

For International Travellers who are applying for Financial Aid

We have the following policies for recipients of Financial Aid grants.

While PyCon’s Financial Aid program does strive to make travel possible for a broader audience than can not comfortably attend the conference on their own budget, it cannot eliminate the risks of travel. Indeed, our mechanism for delivering awarded funds — a disbursement collected at the conference itself — can only succeed for travelers who actually reach PyCon.

With that in mind, let’s review the risks of traveling to PyCon financial aid recipients may encounter, and then learn about the promise that the conference makes for refunds:

The deadline for applying to PyCon 2020 for Financial Aid is January 31st (23:59:59 on Jan 31st AoE)! The link to the application is on our main Financial Aid page: If you have a refund request or questions, please contact our Financial Aid team.

We hope that these extra guarantees beyond the normal terms of our refund policy will help attendees plan more confidently and will continue to make PyCon 2020 an option for as many Pythonistas from around the world as possible.
