Button Equity Scholarship

The Button Equity Scholarship exists to increase diversity, inclusivity, and equity for our event audiences. Applications open in February. Join the Button mailing list to get notified.

Let’s make content design better, together—for everyone.

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


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

Selection criteria

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.

Scholarship coverage

Applicants for a scholarship to our virtual event need only specify which ticket type they would like to receive. Scholarships are not awarded for Team Watch tickets.

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