An Unholy Harvest Scholarship Program
In an effort to make sure that An Unholy Harvest is accessible to people from a range of economic circumstances, we established a scholarship program in 2008. A minimum of four individuals will be awarded a scholarship, which covers the full registration cost for An Unholy Harvest. Extra scholarships may be available depending on participant donations.
How do I apply?
Fill out the scholarship application form when it’s posted (usually when registration opens in mid-June each year).
What will my scholarship cover?
Scholarships only cover the cost of conference registration. All other costs such as travel, hotel and food must be assumed by the attendee. We encourage scholarship recipients (like other attendees) to try to arrange for ride-shares, community housing or room-shares via the Unholy Harvest yahoo group, which all conference attendees will be invited to join upon their registration.
If you are a Canadian participant living outside the Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto corridor, and are in financial need, you are eligible for our travel fund. Check out our travel fund page for details.
When will I know if get a scholarship?
Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until all scholarships have been awarded. We are not responsible for lost applications. We will inform applicants of their status within one week of receiving their application.
Who will know I got a scholarship?
Three people will know about your application: the two conference organizers, Jacqueline St-Urbain and Andrea Zanin, and our registration manager, Lovemonkey. In every other respect, you will be registered and participate as any other conference attendee. Your application information and status will not be disclosed and it will not be visible to our registration volunteers.
How can I help the scholarship program?
If donors wish to cover other expenses for scholarship recipients, such as travel, hotel, or a food stipend, we welcome those contributions. You can make a donation through PayPal when registering to attend Harvest and earmark it for the scholarship fund, or e-mail us at email@example.com to inquire about other ways to donate.
