Scholarships will be made available

FSCI is the production of a wide array of volunteers; all of the instructors and most involved in planning contribute their time and effort and help us keep the tuition fees for FSCI low. However, we know that for some in our community of scholars, even our modest tuition fees are a barrier to participation. To allow full participation by the global FSCI community, we have set aside a minimum of 100 complementary seats for the most qualified scholarship applicants.  The scholarships will be available to all applicants who participate in Scholarly Communication, with preference given to those who demonstrate active support for Open Scholarship in their communities of practice.

Please fill out this form to apply for a scholarship. Applications will be due by June 5. Decisions will be made by a panel of FSCI volunteers, and applicants will be notified of their application status as soon as the week of June 12. If you intend to apply, please do not register for FSCI until you are notified of the status of your scholarship application. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive a discount registration code to apply at checkout.

If you have questions about course scope or any other issues, please contact to discuss how your course idea aligns with FSCI’s attendees.
