SAND Scholarship Program
SAND is committed to making our programs accessible to as many people as possible, from all income levels and backgrounds. To that end, we are offering 200-300 partial and full scholarships for each of our programs and gatherings.
We are particularly interested in supporting historically marginalized communities. This scholarship program is part of our larger commitment to anti-racism and equity. We prioritize applications from Black, Indigenous, and other people of color as well as those wishing to join from less economically developed or otherwise marginalized countries (global south). We ask that you honor those intentions and only apply if a scholarship is truly needed.
When reviewing applications, we will take the following into consideration: your connection to the topic and/or presenter, how you will utilize and share the experience gained in the program with your community, financial need, previous scholarship awards, event capacity, and available funds.
Please be aware that each event has a scholarship application deadline (approximately 3 weeks before the event) AND a scholarship quota. Once we reach our scholarship quota OR deadline, whichever comes first, we will close the application process. Once selected, recipients will have a week to register.
SAND is a nonprofit organization. If you are in a position to do so, please consider helping us create more scholarship opportunities by donating to the scholarship fund.
