2019 CanSMOF Scholarships

CanSMOF Inc, has awarded two of the three scholarships they offered to assist people in attending Smofcon 37 in Albuquerque, NM. CanSMOF Inc is the organization that ran the 2009 Worldcon in Montreal.

The scholarship open to a non-North American resident was awarded to Bastien Vergoni of Nice, France.

Another scholarship, open to anyone involved in running conventions, regardless of their place of residence or citizenship, was awarded to Lisa Adler-Golden of College Park, MD.

The scholarship open to a Canadian citizen or resident was not awarded due to a lack of response.

Smofcon 37 will be held in Albuquerque, NM. December 6 through 8, 2019.

  1. Hi there! I just attended Smofcon37 and met both Bastien Vergoni of Nice and Lisa Adler-Golden who’s running Balticon. My colleague and I did a Fannish Inquisition session at Smofcon37 and was greatly inspired. We made many friends there. Through Lisa’s FB post i saw this webpage and realized there’s such an award, and you know what, I am both a Canadian citizen, and help doing con-running work with Chengdu, China for the 2023 Worldcon bid. So how could i apply to the next award??
