Scholarship Spotlight: LGBTQ+ Scholarship

LGBTQ+ activists assemble! We have just introduced brand new scholarships for our next Campaign Bootcamp residential training, and we couldn't be more excited!

What is Bootcamp?

A Bootcamp is a six-day residential training open to activists in the UK who want to campaign strategically and with confidence.

On it, you’ll tool yourself up to run powerful campaigns and meet new co-conspirators while you’re at it. What’s more, we pride ourselves on creating LGBTQ+ friendly space at Bootcamp.

For the past few years, Bootcamp has welcomed many of our LGBTQ+ siblings onto our residential trainings, and this has been in part due to the hard work of our graduates via word of mouth.

Campaigning can look a multitude of ways. We’re excited to offer our LGBTQ+ scholarship for campaigners who identify within the LGBTQ+ spectrum.

Who is eligible for the LGBTQ+ Scholarship for Campaigners?

The LGBTQ+ scholarship is for anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer. You do not need to be campaigning on LGBTQ+ issues to be eligible for this scholarship – you can campaign on any issue.

What does the scholarship include?

If you’re successful in getting a scholarship, you’ll get access to the full year-long Campaign Bootcamp programme. It starts with a week of thoughtful and confidence-building training for a group of 35 enthusiastic activists.

The topics we cover include planning a campaign, working with the media, choosing your tactics, video-making for campaigners, and much more! After the residential is over you’ll get a year of follow up support, including mentoring and extra events.

The scholarship covers training, food and accommodation. We also offer assistance paying for travel to and from the venue for folks who need it.
