Get Your WTF Summit Scholarship Submission in by This Thursday!

This just in from the WTF Bikexplorers! Check out all the information you need to apply for their Summit Scholarship below.

“I’m hoping that you could help us spread the word about the Summit Scholarships that we’re accepting applications for through this Thursday! There are five scholarships available, all of which include a ticket to the Summit this August, a $500 travel stipend, a Sweetroll bag from Revelate Designs, a year premium subscription to Ride With GPS and awesome #shredthepatricharchy swag. Three recipients will also receive a bike, based on their needs, from either Bike Works or Specialized.”

The ideal scholarship recipient will:

-be WTFnB (Trans men and women are welcome with arms wide open)
-have a spirit of adventure and want to grow their bike-packing experience
-have a need for this scholarship in order to attend the Summit
-be committed to shredding the patriarchy for the long haul
-have ideas for future bike packing trips in mind
-be enthusiastic about supporting, connecting, and celebrating the WTFnB people in your community
-be rad

Interested folks should apply here by Thursday, May 25th at 11:59pm (PT). Additionally, we’re asking the community to help support our Scholarships on GoFundMe. There are no better roots than the grassroots. Fundraising, that is. If you support our mission and efforts, please consider helping us grow the community through our Go Fund Me. All the money raised will go directly toward covering lodging, meals, and travel expenses for 5 scholarship recipients. We are currently trying to raise $2500 and need your help to make it happen.

We’ve also got our Summit Schedule and Sessions published.  The first event in our Ride Series went down last month in Patagonia, AZ. Sarah wrote up a recap here.
