Big Bad Con is committed to cultivating a spectacular gaming community. Our Scholarship Fund goes towards travel, hotel, and badge fees for those attendees who need assistance.
The deadline to apply is 8/15/2017. All funds will be distributed by 9/20/2017. Scholarship fund distributions will be based on our best effort to bring as many individuals as we can afford to the con. Awards will be announced privately to the recipients.
How to apply for scholarship funds
To support diversity at Big Bad Con, these funds will go to help financially challenged women, people of color, disabled, and lgbtqia+ individuals attend the con. We will use it to cover hotel rooms ($129+/night), convention badges ($40), and other necessary fees. Depending on the number of applicants, we may be able cover full or partial costs. To sign up for assistance, please fill out the form below:
Want to help out? Thank you! Contributions to the scholarship fund can be made through our Kickstarter campaign (set to launch later in May of 2017). Together we can make Big Bad Con even greater by inviting folks that wouldn’t be able to attend without our support!
