We are pleased to announce that this year's Minotaur Scholarship has been awarded to [personal profile] luciazephyr -- she's a CON.TXT virgin, so please give her a big welcome when you see her at the con!

Due to the generosity of our members, we were able to award an additional full scholarship; we've awarded that one to [personal profile] staranise.

We also awarded two half price scholarships -- one to [personal profile] tazlet and another to [personal profile] kinetikatrue.

Congratulations! We're looking forward to seeing all of you next month!

In order to make CON.TXT more affordable to more fans, we'll again be offering our Scholarship Program.

Here's how it works:

* In memory of Minotaur, the con comm is offering one fully funded scholarship; this is limited to applicants who have not attended any members-only portion of CON.TXT in the past.

* In addition to the memorial scholarship, five half-price memberships will be available to fans whose financial situation would not otherwise permit them to attend the con; this scholarship is open to anyone.

* Applications should include a brief statement explaining why applicants need/should receive a scholarship to attend CON.TXT. All applicants must be willing to volunteer a minimum of two hours at the con.

* Please note -- the con comm will offer assistance securing a roomshare and/or rideshare (as necessary), but we can't promise anything.

* Interested? Email your fan name (or a friend's) and statement to The con comm will carefully consider each application, and scholarship recipients will be notified and/or announced May 7th, 2012.

The deadline for all scholarship applications is April 30th, 2012.
