SCHOLARSHIPS

 

The deadline to submit applications will be December 17th, 2022.

The first round of scholarship grants will be awarded on Christmas Day, 2022.

*Any applications submitted after 12/17/22 will automatically be added to our Waitlist. 

In 2022, we awarded 60 scholarships to people in need. Many of our recipients were from the TriState area and several were from around the world. Special thanks to our Gay & Sober patrons for their generous financial support.  

A special note about scholarships: Scholarship recipients are treated no different from a paid participant. Only the Registrations Chair, Volunteer Coordinator and Conference Chair will know who has been awarded a scholarship. We find that this practice adds to a healthy and spiritual experience for everyone at GSM. 

*Scholarships are granted to anyone, anywhere in need. However, newcomers are given high priority. Scholarships are for all Conference events, meetings, and activities. Scholarships do not include food, travel, or lodging at the host hotel. We recommend sharing a room at the host hotel to save on costs. Scholarships also do not include the separate RoundDown on Fire Island.

**NEW YORKERS: To those in the New York City area that never heard about tickets or scholarship opportunities... 

That is because certain individuals prevented the information from getting announced in meetings or posted on sober Facebook groups. We encourage you to make your voice heard at your home group's business meetings and advocate that these type of recovery related announcement be allowed in meetings, groups and Facebook pages. Remember, "fellowship is an important part of the program".

Participants that received a scholarship in 2022 are not eligible for a 2023 scholarship. This gives new people a chance to enjoy the events we offer.
