Equity Scholarship

The window for the Button 2023 equity scholarships has closed; please join our mailing list to stay up to date about future opportunities

We envision a more diverse, inclusive, equitable field of practice.

Conferences don’t just reflect the communities they represent. They actively shape them.

Brain Traffic founded the Button Equity Scholarship program to help build a more diverse, inclusive community far beyond our time together at Button events each year. These scholarships allow us to expand the Button audience to include people whose experiences are marginalized due to systemic oppression and exclusion.

Who is eligible?

You are welcome to apply for a scholarship if you meet one or more of these criteria:

  • You are a Black person
  • You are a person of color
  • You are an Indigenous person
  • You have a disability
  • You identify as LGBTQIA+
  • You have lost your source of income or are experiencing a financial crisis
  • You can articulate another way you are experiencing inequity

How do we award scholarships?

We will award scholarships based on need, impact, and available funds. If we have more applications than scholarships, a diverse group of reviewers will assist in the selection process.

What does each scholarship include?

Applicants for a scholarship to the Button 2024 main conference may request a free conference pass.

We aim to make Button an inclusive place, and we would love for our community to be our partners in accountability.
