In furtherance of our mission, we are offering a limited number of monetary stipends intended to encourage attendance by people who have traditionally been underrepresented at the IAGSDC convention.
All dancers are welcome to apply for this stipend. We especially welcome applications from people who feel that they may be a part of an underrepresented group (or groups) based on race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, ability, age, or nationality.
The Diversity Fellowship has been paid by tax-deductible donations made to All Join Hands Foundation, and by donations from an anonymous donor. For more information about All Join Hands Foundation or how you can donate, please visit their website at alljoinhands.org.
* Applications not receiving an award in initial wave will be included for review in subsequent selections.
* Applicants do not need to have already registered for the 2020 Convention in order to be considered, but they must register and attend in order to collect the award (at check-in at Denver convention).
* Recipients will be chosen by a selection committee based on their identity as a member of an underrepresented group or their ability to otherwise contribute to the promotion of diversity and inclusion at the convention.
