LOVE FELLOWSHIP

The LOVE Fellowship is a new part of fulfilling our values and deepening our community outreach. The goal of this fellowship is to award a BurlyCon registration, a shared hotel room, and a travel stipend to the recipient. In addition, the fellowship awardee will have a unique opportunity to work on a project with the organization. 

Should an applicant not be awarded a fellowship, BurlyCon also offers a variety of volunteer opportunities and installment payment plans.

Fellowship applications are carefully considered by a diverse scholarship committee of BurlyCon directors and steering committee members. We will be prioritizing individuals who have significant burlesque experience who are also people of color.
