Evolutions Scholarship Program
Are you a new or aspiring podcaster who wants to attend Evolutions but financial limitations are an obstacle? You may be eligible for an Evolutions 2022 Scholarship.
These scholarships are for podcasters who have never attended a Podcast Movement event before, have not yet signed up for Evolutions, and who would require assistance in order to join the conference.
Submit your application by Friday, February 18 at midnight to be considered. Scholarship recipients will be announced on February 23.
