Equitable Development creates a seat at the table for communities affected by inequity. As such, PACDC will offer a limited number of scholarships to Philadelphians who otherwise would not be able to attend the event. Apply by 11:59 pm, on Friday, May 24th. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
