For individuals, C++Now offers the Boost Scholarship Sponsorship in support of the Boost Scholarship Fund. Corporate Sponsorships are also available.

The Boost Scholarship Fund supports two programs that directly benefit C++ students and indirectly benefit the entire C++ community: Boost Summer of Code and the C++Now Student/Volunteer Program.
The BSoC program is modeled after the Google Summer of Code program, in which Boost is a long time participant. Like GSoC, BSoC projects provide funding for students to work on specific Boost Library projects over the summer. BSoC is designed to supplement the GSoC program by allowing Boost to accept students that would otherwise be rejected by GSoC due to limited funding or eligibility.
Each year, the conference gives financial support to a small group of young programmers covering expenses to attend the conference. In exchange, the volunteers help the C++Now staff in running the conference.
Contributions to the Boost Scholarship Fund are earmarked* to support these programs and can be made in any amount, but specific benefits attach at certain sponsorship levels. Donations are made to the Boost Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity and are fully tax-deductable to the extent permitted by law. Credit card transactions are made through our partner Krueger Event Management, which manages the C++Now event. Donors will receive a disclosure statement indicating the fair market value of any tangible benefits received.
Are you a student who will volunteer in exchange for a ticket? Not a student, just want to volunteer?

* It is the intent of the Boost Foundation to honor the wishes of all donors; however, an earmark does not represent a legal obligation on the Foundation to apply the funds as directed and we reserve the right to reallocate any unused funds toward other Boost activities. All funds will, regardless of their use, be spent in a way that benefits the Boost community, the general public, and the advancement of free and open source software.
