Last Call for PM23 Scholarship Applications
APPLY BY FRIDAY – SCHOLARSHIPS CLOSE JULY 7!
Podcast Movement was created in 2014 so that the entire community could gather each year in a place to call their own. Of course, many new and/or aspiring podcasters want to join us, but not all are in a financial position to make it happen
Every year, we try our best to help those who are willing, able, and serious about attending Podcast Movement by working with them to make the event financially accessible. We will always attempt to do for some, what we wish we could do for everyone.
What is the scholarship and what does it include?
It's important to note that this scholarship only applies to a Standard Plus Pass for PM23 this August 21-24. The Standard Plus Pass does not include hotel or airfare, and the ticket is not transferable.
Who is eligible?
As a brand-new or yet-to-launch podcaster who LOVES podcasting, you may be eligible for our scholarship. Having an active track record of being part of the Podcast Movement Facebook Community helps!
Who is not eligible?
The scholarships are reserved for those who have never before attended a Podcast Movement event, have not yet signed up for PM23, and are not in a position to attend the conference without financial assistance.
How can I apply?
To wrap things up, we wanted to remind everyone of our Community and Event Codes of Conduct. As the online community continues to grow and evolve, and our next big in-person event gets closer, it's never a bad time to make sure that we are all respectful of one another.
With that said, we hope your week is going great, and we can't wait to be back in your inbox soon!
