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 (don't worry: it's fun too!). Interested? Email your fan name and statement to
