This year, because of the generosity of the Sirens community, we raised the funds necessary to provide thirteen scholarships! To everyone who donated, thank you. Thank you for your financial commitment to our community and for helping make Sirens possible for certain individuals who are both critical to our conversations and who sometimes find it difficult to attend without additional support.
Each scholarship includes both a Sirens registration and a Sirens Shuttle ticket. The thirteen scholarships will be allocated as follows: three to fans of color/non-white fans, three to those submitting exemplary programming proposals, four to those with financial hardships, and three to librarians, educators, and publishing professionals (which may be anyone from an editor to an agent to a publicist to a cover designer to a bookseller).
If you need assistance, we hope you’ll consider applying for a scholarship. We designed this program specifically to help additional voices join our conference and our community—and your voice counts. Please visit our Scholarships page for more information on how to apply.
