UPDATE: The deadline has passed. Applications are now closed. (We have received so many applications already so we’re really glad we made this cut-off! Next year, it’ll be a shorter window!!)
The World Experience Summit is a unique event that brings together some of the world’s most creative, innovative minds to share their knowledge, experiences, and insights.
This is an incredible opportunity to connect and network with industry leaders, learn about the latest trends, technology, tools, and techniques, and share your ideas on how to create better experiences.
Because a community only really works if everyone who’s in the community is invited and able to come, we are pleased to announce that the WXO is offering scholarships for those who want to attend the World Experience Summit, but can’t afford the full cost for some reason.
Maybe this is you. If so, read on.
Maybe you know someone who’s a die-hard experience fan and has been raving about coming, but can’t figure out how to pull the money together. If so, please share.
From queries we’ve received, we think there are four categories relevant for scholarship:
Emerging Talent & Students
You’re at the beginning of your journey in experiences.
We want to encourage the full participation of all, especially anyone who’s from a group that’s historically been underrepresented or subject to discrimination. (This is AKA Diversity, Equality, Inclusion.)
Maybe you’re mid-career and just lost your job, or you’re freelance and your latest gig just fell through.
We believe that the benefits of experientialism and better designed experiences should be for all.
The scholarships are open to all of the above. Each will be considered on an individual basis.
To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:
- You must be 18 years or older.
- You must demonstrate a passion for experiences.
- You must be able to attend the World Experience Summit in person, and be able to cover the costs of your travel and accommodation. This is our first Summit and we are not able to cover additional costs.
[NOTE: If you are reading this and you work for a brand who would like to sponsor and support the WXS sponsorships, please get in touch.]
To apply for the scholarship, please submit your application via the form link below.
Incomplete applications will not be considered. The deadline for applications is 16 June 2023. We will try to get back to all applicants, but please understand we’re a small team and this is a busy time.
We look forward to receiving your applications and hope to see you at the World Experience Summit!
