Sirens Scholarship Applications: People of Color/Non-White People

Sirens—and its community—values inclusiveness, diversity, and representation. As Sirens grows more inclusive, our community and our conversations become more informed, more respectful, and more vibrant. While many who attend Sirens do represent a variety of genders, sexualities, races, ethnicities, creeds, and abilities, both Sirens and its community are committed to helping additional individuals attend Sirens.

That’s why, when the Sirens community raises money to fund Sirens scholarships, our first allocation is three scholarships to Con or Bust. Con or Bust is a tax-exempt not-for-profit organization that helps people of color/non-white people attend science fiction and fantasy conventions. Sirens is proud to have worked with Con or Bust in a variety of ways during our history—and for the support of the Sirens community in increasing our support in recent years.

In 2016, Sirens has three scholarships—which include both a full Sirens registration and a round-trip Sirens Shuttle ticketavailable through Con or Bust. To apply, please visit Con or Bust and apply using their processes. Because Sirens is still several months away, Con or Bust will allocate its three Sirens scholarships during a request period—which is happening right now. Con or Bust’s current request period will end June 6; if they have three requests for the Sirens scholarships at that time, they will allocate the scholarships then.

If you are a person of color/non-white person and you’d like to come to Sirens, we hope that you’ll consider applying for a scholarship with Con or Bust. We designed our scholarship program specifically to help additional voices join our conference and our community—and your voice counts!
