Type of Scholarships

We’ve all had our share of challenges in the last couple of years. We have not increased our ticket prices since 2019, but we realize that circumstances can still be a challenge for some. We want to ensure we can support you in attending Design Leadership Summit 2022.
Apply for a sponsored 2-Day Pass at $29 registration fee (to cover taxes), if any of the below applies to you:

Impacted by Layoffs

If you’re a design leader impacted by the recent layoffs, join us to learn how others are navigating the current economic challenges, feel inspired again and maybe even find your next opportunity!

Underrepresented Leaders

Goes without saying, we’re here to support underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in design. This includes, but is not limited to: women, LGBTQ, people of colour, people with disabilities, and those over the age of 65 – who are in leadership and managerial roles and are interested in attending the summit.

On Parental Leave

While we can’t help you with the new (or lack of) sleep cycles, we can help bridge the financial concerns that attending a conference while on parental leave can bring. Let us cover the ticket for you, while you figure out child care!
