Big Bad Con Scholarship Fund

Big Bad Con is committed to cultivating a spectacular and diverse gaming community. Our Scholarship Fund goes towards travel, hotel, and badge fees for attendees from marginalized groups who need assistance. In 2018 we were able to offer 13 scholarships up from 11 in 2017, up from 7 in 2016, and 4 in 2015.


During the Kickstarter campaign (coming soon) we’ll have several options for contributing to the scholarship fund. Back at any of those levels (or add a scholarship contribution in the follow up BackerKit campaign) and we’ll build a fund to bring folks to the con.

After the Kickstarter closes (likely in June) the scholarship application will open. Scholarship fund distributions will be based on our best effort to bring as many individuals as we can afford to the con. Awards will be announced privately to the recipients.


While we wait for the Kickstarter, if you would like to contribute to the Scholarship Fund, please click the donation button below. Any contributions made after September will be set aside for next year’s fund. Thank you very much for your support!
