Big Bad Con is committed to providing a spectacular gaming community. This year we ran a Kickstarter campaign, which included a Scholarship contribttion level. In addition, when the campaign closed, all backers had the opportunity to add a contribution to their pledge via Backerkit.
Update 8/20/16: The Scholarship fund applications for 2016 is closed. We’re reviewing all the applications as well as our scholarship contributions to help as many people as possible make it out to the con. We’ll be in touch with all the applicants no later than 9/20/2016.
Update 8/26/16: Emails sent to all of our applicants. We hope the funds we have available are sufficient to bring them all out to the con.
The deadline to apply is 8/20/2016. All funds will be distributed by 9/20/2016. 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.
Our progress so far
Last year, between Kickstarter, BackerKit, and direct contributions we raised $590. That was awesome. With that we helped four wonderful people attend Big Bad Con that otherwise would not have been able to. This is a wonderful feeling. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the fund. Here’s to making that fund even bigger and better in 2016!
