Breakin' It Down Scholarships

Need-based conference scholarship for nonprofit organizations professionals

Breakin' It Down will be sponsoring need-based scholarships for 14 nonprofit professionals and students to attend the 2019 Breakin' It Down Conference on October 11.  

The Breakin' It Down Scholarship is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Woods Fund Chicago and our sponsors.

Anyone who is a nonprofit fund development professional or student in the Chicago area is welcome to apply. We especially encourage people from an under-represented group - including people of color, women, LGBTQIA people, and people with disabilities - to apply.

The scholarships will cover the 2019 BID Conference's registration fee for diverse nonprofit professionals in the fund development field and students who would otherwise be unable to attend. This one-day empowerment event offers great opportunities for networking and professional development, especially for those serving under-represented and underserved communities in the Chicago area.

It is BID's main goal to have an inclusive event with a welcoming environment. We are trying hard to remove barriers. However, we are aware that issues are diverse. If there is something that keeps you away from this conference, please get in touch with us so we can work this out. 

Please complete the online application to be considered for scholarships awarded by Breakin' It Down Planning Committee. Early applications are recommended and encouraged as scholarships are limited.  

Applications will be accepted as funds allow and/or until scholarship spaces are exhausted. 

Online applications must be submitted by 5 pm on September 27, 2019, to attend the 2019 Breakin' It Down Conference. 

All applicants will receive response by October 3, 2019.
