Scholarships

MindQuake is committed to identifying, developing, advancing, and supporting our community of happy hypnokinksters. As such, we recognize that accessing funds for development is a potential limitation for some folks. To help remedy this, MindQuake has created scholarships that provide supplemental funds to assist folks in attending our annual conference.

This fund was created with donations by MindQuackers support through purchasing registrations at the benefactors level of $150 support or more.

Who can apply?

Anyone who needs some kind of assistance to come to the conference. We have a limited amount of funds available for registration and financial assistance. Note: We have some space available for those in need of a place to crash who are not picky and we can also assist in searching for a roommate. Scholarships will not be awarded for hotel rooms alone, but feel free to contact us for help finding lodging.

We have 1-2 MindQuake Scholarships available at this time due to the gracious generosity of our benefactors. They will be awarded at the discretion of the MindQuake ConCom and due to the perceived beneficial personal and community gain of granting the scholarship and announced publicly (with the recipients permission.)

Scholarship recipients are not expected to volunteer or present or otherwise provide compensation in return for their scholarship.

How to apply?
