Scholarships

Don’t let costs keep you away from OCON!

Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, recipients can receive various types of discounts and reimbursement for their costs. We offer everything from discounts on registration up to full reimbursement for travel costs. Scholarships are limited and are awarded for merit, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We award scholarships to two categories of applicants:
  1. If you are a serious student of Ayn Rand’s ideas, whether you are in university, high school, or studying philosophy on your own, you are eligible to receive a travel scholarship to ensure you are able to attend OCON.
  1. If you take Ayn Rand’s ideas seriously in your life and are eager to attend OCON, hopefully for your first time, in order to meet a group of like-minded people. Perhaps you’re no longer a student, but the cost of the conference or travel is too steep. We’d still like you to consider being part of our community, please fill out the form below.
You do not need to register for OCON before applying to this scholarship.

Application deadline is April 15, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. US Pacific Time.
