You will need to make your own way to London for the event. We are extending travel subsidies to selected hackers based on application requests. If your application is accepted, the e-mail you receive asking you to confirm your invite will also contain information on whether or not you are receiving travel reimbursements.

What happened to the other MLH Prime events?

With over 150 events, the Spring Semester of the 2017 Season is largest Hackathon Season ever. Due to the amazing growth we've seen in the number of events and hackers, running an MLH Prime event every other month was too ambitious of an undertaking for our small team. We've decided to focus our resources on supporting the amazing season events for now.
