Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

No, the registration can only be used for GHC 23 regardless of the circumstance.

I am a woman in tech, but do not identify as any of the racial/ethnic groups listed. Can I still apply for the complimentary registration?

At this time, given the limited amount of complimentary registrations available, we are focusing on specific groups that are both underrepresented in the tech industry and at Grace Hopper Celebration. We are working on further expanding to include additional groups that are underrepresented in the tech industry and persons with disabilities in order to continue providing targeted services and programming in the future.

Can I apply for this scholarship if I applied to be a GHC speaker?

Yes, you may apply.

If I received a student or faculty scholarship to attend GHC before, am I still eligible to apply?
