SMOFCon Scholarships Announced

[From an announcement received today.]

Cansmof Inc. [parent non-profit corporation of the 2007 Worldcon in Montreal], is pleased to announce that two scholarships for the purpose of attending Smofcon 37 in Albuquerque, NM have been awarded.

Cansmof announced three scholarships: the first scholarship was open to a Canadian citizen or resident, the second was open to a non-North American resident, while the third one was open to anyone involved in running conventions, regardless of their place of residence or citizenship. Cansmof Inc. created these scholarships to allow promising convention-runners to attend the annual Smofcon convention-runners convention.

Due to a lack of responses, the first scholarship was not awarded. The second scholarship was awarded to Bastien Vergoni of Nice, France, and the third was awarded to Lisa Adler-Golden of College Park, MD.

Cansmof congratulates the two recipients and thanks all applicants.

Smofcon 37 will be held in Albuquerque, NM. December 6 through 8, 2019. For information about this year's Smofcon, see For information about Smofcon in general, see
