2020 Conference Scholarship Application
We are no longer accepting scholarship applications as the deadline has passed.
This application is specifically for financial assistance to attend the 2020 GCLS Conference in Albuquerque, NM, July 8 - 12, 2020.
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 shared with the Scholarship Committee, a subset of the Board of Directors.
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! A new benefit of the scholarship this year is a free one year membership for non-members if they want to join.
All applicants will be notified by email of their application status on or before January 21st, 2020. In the case that you do not accept the scholarship by January 31st, the scholarship will be offered to someone whose application is on the wait list. If you accept the scholarship and later cannot attend, the monies will be returned to the applicable Scholarship Fund.
GCLS Scholarships will cover any of the hotel options and registration:
If you want to add a Food Ticket, it can be purchased separately for a one-time or payment plan option for $100.00
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. A partial scholarship may be offered to accommodate as many applicants as possible.
Scholarship applicants may only apply every third year after receiving a scholarship. (Ex: if scholarship is received in 2020 applicant may apply again in 2023)
