We have two programs for reduced rate scholarships: one is for Chicago residents and one is for attendees from other geographic locations. In addition, one full-rate scholarship, the Bobby Wilson Scholarship, will be awarded annually.

We are no longer taking scholarship applications.

You will be notified of acceptance after June 30th.


It takes the hard work of many dedicated people to put on a conference like this. We hope you will consider volunteering to help us out. Volunteers are need for set-up, to serve as room monitors, tour bus captains, and more. For your 4-hour shift as a volunteer, you will earn free registration for the remainder of that day. Shift descriptions and times will be listed soon.
