Leather History Preservation Foundation Scholarships

The Leather History Preservation Foundation devotes some of it's fundraising efforts to generating scholarships for attending the weekend event we produce. We also receive donations of registration packages from extremely generous individuals.


For LHC 2016 we had SIX scholarships donated!


The first scholarship is intended to encourage someone who is new to Leather to step into the history and traditions of our lifestyle. It is presented as an opportunity to learn and grow as a Leatherman or Leatherwoman. Age is not a factor, but time and experience in the scene are. These two scholarships were awarded to both inidividuals who applied! These "new to leather" scholarships were awarded to people with less than two years of real time experience.


We had FOUR scholarships that were donated to be used for "someone who could not otherwise attend Leather History Conference." We are pleased that we were able to award all four of these scholarships based on financial need.


Unfortunately our financial resources are limited. These scholarships only cover the full three day weekend package, which includes the Saturday dinner and keynote presentation. They do not cover the expense of a hotel room (we encourage room shares to reduce costs, however we will not vet potential roommates!), additional food costs, or transportation costs. In the future, we hope to be able to provide scholarships or grants that will be able to include hotel and food costs.
