If you’ve been very sharp-sighted the last couple of days, you may have noticed something new in the sidebar here. It’s a widget for Secular Woman’s travel grant program. They’re looking to put travel to Skepticon within reach for at least ten women who would otherwise not be able to attend.
Eligibility requirements for receiving the grants are on the Secular Woman website. To indicate your interest in receiving one, simply check off your interest in receiving financial aid for travel on the Skepticon registration page. Admission to the conference itself is free, which makes the grants go even further.
You are planning to register for Skepticon, right? You’ve seen the list of speakers? You know that more interesting people are working to put workshops together (hint, hint)? Trust me, you’ll want to be there.
For now, though, contribute to the widget if you’ve got a few bucks to spare. As Onion Girl mentioned recently, it’s a nice way of making yourself feel a little better in the face of all the nasty trolling we’ve seen recently. There’s nothing like making a difference to make the ridiculous people look all the more ridiculous.
