We are very proud to announce the ClexaCon Scholarship Fund for ClexaCon 2018!
Our convention, which has been described by many as life-changing, is a safe space for LGBTQ women and allies. We welcome everyone, from all walks of life, to come share your love of fandom, talk about LGBTQ representation in media, meet new people and celebrate the ability to feel safe and connected to the LGBTQ community.
The goal of the Scholarship Fund is to raise money to help offset some of the travel expenses for panelists and attendees who otherwise could not afford to attend. Whether you have a little or a lot to give, this is a great way to help ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend and experience the safe, welcoming spirit that is ClexaCon.
This fund is intended to help with travel and expenses. In addition to smaller scholarships to help with these costs, we are aiming to fully fund travel and accommodation for a small selection of people. Full scholarships, as well as a number of smaller scholarships given, will be awarded based on funds raised. If you are interested in fully funding a scholarship in your or someone else’s name, please contact us at [email protected].
Scholarships will be distributed based on essay submissions. Applications will be accepted here.
Disclaimer: ClexaCon is currently a for-profit organization, therefore your donation is not tax deductible; however, all donations (minus the transaction fees from YouCaring) will be allocated to scholarship recipients.
* ClexaCon does not pay speaking fees. 100% of donations (after YouCaring fees) will go toward travel and/or accommodation support.
