The Glen GoodKnight Starving Scholars Fund

The Glen GoodKnight Starving Scholars Fund supports attendance at Mythcon for scholars and other participants. Preference is given to persons presenting a paper or participating on a panel, though others are not automatically excluded from consideration. Awards consist of membership in the conference and/or a gift of money toward other conference expenses (such as travel costs). The Mythcon Papers Coordinator, in consultation with the Mythopoeic Society Council of Stewards and the Conference Committee, makes the final decision in regard to award recipients, amounts and application of funds.

The Starving Scholars Fund was renamed in honor of our founder, Glen GoodKnight, upon his passing in November 2010. Glen always emphasized the importance of encouraging scholarship in Inklings studies and was happy to see this fund come into existence; we believe he would be pleased to have his name associated with the Starving Scholars Fund.
