WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Friday 30 October 2009 – LCA2010 Organisers,
in association with InternetNZ and Google, are proud to announce the
recipients of the LCA2010 Funding Programmes!

The three funding programmes - InternetNZ Oceania Programme, InternetNZ
Kiwi Fellowship and Google Diversity Programme - have been created to
assist those delegates contributing to the Open Source community who,
without financial assistance, would not be able to attend LCA2010. All
funding recipients receive a Hobbyist ticket to attend LCA2010,
accommodation for the week of the conference, and a contribution towards
the costs of travel to Wellington.

"The winners of our Funding Programme will bring a wealth of experience
to LCA2010", said Brenda Wallace, LCA2010 Funding Manager. "We are
especially pleased to be able to fund delegates from Tuvalu, Tonga and
the Philippines as part of the InternetNZ Oceania Programme".

InternetNZ Kiwi Fellowship - LCA2010 will be the first time the
conference has been held in New Zealand's capital city, Wellington.
LCA2010 and InternetNZ are proud to support New Zealanders contributing
to the Open Source community by offering this funding programme.

contributors are living throughout the greater Australasia and Pacific
regions who, without financial assistance, would not be able to attend

programme in support of those communities.
