Complimentary Conference Registration Fee Waiver

An EMPOWER scholarship is a fee waiver for a general EMPOWER registration. Recipients will be able to attend all general sessions, keynote sessions, workshops, mentorship sessions, and other activities open to participants during the conference. Individuals receiving scholarships are responsible for their own expenses (rooms, meals, transportation, etc.).


Kollaboration will prioritize applicants who have shown a proactive pursuit of a career in the arts, whether that is performance based or in the professional realm. If you are new to the arts and entertainment industries and want to attend EMPOWER as a gateway, be clear with your goals, vision, and motivation.

*Please note, past recipients of the EMPOWER Conference Scholarship are allowed to apply again, but priority will go towards first time recipients.
