MaxFunCon Scholarship - Now Accepting Applications!


We've got some exciting news for folks interested in experiencing MaxFunCon, but finding it financially out of reach:

This year, thanks to the generosity of MaxFunCon attendees, we are able to offer one scholarship ticket for the event!

The scholarship will be awarded to an individual who has a strong desire to attend but is financially unable to do so.

This scholarship is a free ticket to the event. It does not cover transportation to the event (i.e., airfare, rental car), but still covers the cost of your MaxFunCon ticket, accommodations, food, drink, and activities.

In order to apply for this scholarship, you must meet all of the following criteria:

  • You have significant financial need. Specifically, it would be difficult or impossible for you to attend MaxFunCon if you did not receive a scholarship.
  • You will be able to participate in the entire weekend-long conference. MaxFunCon begins at 4 PM on Friday, June 9th and ends at 1 PM on Sunday, June 11th.
  • You are able to arrange your own transportation to and from Lake Arrowhead, CA to attend MaxFunCon.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you will need to fill out this form:

We're asking for a short essay telling us a bit about yourself. Essay instructions are as follows:

  • Explain why you want to go to MaxFunCon. In particular, please describe your creative aspirations and how attending MaxFunCon might help you with your future projects.
  • The essay must be no longer than 300 words. Essays longer than 300 words will not be read or considered.

The deadline for scholarship applications is midnight PT on Friday, May 19th.
We will select and notify the recipient by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 24th.

Finally, a HUGE thank you to all the awesome, generous MaxFunCon attendees who contributed to the Scholarship Fund!
