This fund is being offered to folks who belong to groups that have been or are currently systemically marginalized and/or racialized, are underserved, and/or would not have access to the gathering without it. This includes Black/African American, Indigenous/American Indian, Hispanic, Latino/a/x , and Asian American people, as well as people of the global majority, and others.
This is a need based scholarship that aims to increase access, by defraying ticket costs or eliminating them altogether, for folks who are attending the gathering for the first or second time. We hope this fund will encourage folks toward more involvement in the future as regular attendees, worktraders, staff, or instructors.

The application will be available until February 6. Expect a reply within a week of the deadline.
