  • DEF CON General Education Fund

    Hi, all,

    Interested in the creation of a fund to support students coming to DC? After seeing Ahmed Mohamed and the community response to a kid many of us identified with, many people suggested that we as a community create a fund to help students come on our dime---perhaps like the Shmoo A Student program for ShmooCon.

    This is where we can organize thoughts, perhaps plan a shindig to discuss at DC24, and concentrate the people who deeply care about making this happen.

    What do you think? How much should we raise? Who should decide who gets the funds? Should there be an application process or should it be random? Do we prefer rural students over urban ones, since rural students will have fewer social and physical resources?
