2018 Conference Scholarship Application
This application is specifically for financial assistance to attend the 2018 GCLS Conference in Las Vegas, NV, July 4 - 8, 2018. The application covers all available scholarships - the GCLS Conference Scholarship, the Lesbian Reading Room Scholarship (LRR), and the Jen Wright Student Scholarship (JWS). All applicants must complete the first set of questions. The last two sets of questions are specifically for the LRR and the JWS Scholarships and are required only by those applying for either of those scholarships.
You may apply for as many scholarships as you wish - as long as you meet the requirements.
Your name will only be seen by the Chair of the Scholarship Committee who is a member of the Board of Directors and has signed a Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest Agreement. All personal identification will be removed from your application before it is sent to the members of the scholarship review committee. The Chair cannot divulge any names or personal information about an applicant to the committee. She also does not have a vote.
You are not required to be a member of GCLS to apply for or receive a scholarship, although we hope that you will consider becoming a member at some point! All applicants will be notified by email of their application status on or before January 31st, 2018. In the case of a cancellation after January 31st, a scholarship will be offered to someone whose application was originally declined.
GCLS Conference Scholarships are available to cover:
Our scholarship funds are limited, and in the interest of helping as many people as possible, we ask that you only ask for help with what you truly need. Many people are being declined, who would benefit from attending a GCLS Conference.
Please respond thoughtfully and in detail to the following questions.
