Advancing Racial Equity In Philanthropy, Non-Profit, and Fundraising
Breakin' It Down will be sponsoring need-based scholarships for 20 nonprofit, philanthropy, and fundraising professionals and students and community to attend the 2021 Breakin' It Down Conference.
Anyone who is a nonprofit, fundraising, or philanthropy professional, student, or community 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 2021 BID Conference full registration fees (value, $35) for diverse nonprofit, fundraising, or philanthropy professionals and students who would otherwise be unable to attend the workshops and speed networking with funders. This Conference offers great opportunities for networking and professional development, especially for those serving under-represented and underserved communities in the Chicago area. The BID scholarship does not include social components, if any.
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 will open in September. They must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Friday, October 8, 2021, to participate in the 2021 Breakin' It Down Conference. All applicants will receive a response by October 11, 2021.
