The Oren Miller Dad 2.0 Scholarship Fund

“Knowing my name will come to represent the possibility of a blogging dad being able to come [to Dad 2.0] to better himself as a writer and as a dad is an incredible feeling. Knowing my name will continue to be associated with this community makes me feel immortal.” – Oren Miller

In our fourth year, we were honored to rename our scholarship fund after Oren Miller, a beloved and revered dad blogger and friend who died of lung cancer on February 28, 2015.

We’ve created this fund so those who have received much from the Summit community can help newer members attend the 2017 Dad 2.0 Summit; each designee will receive a $500 “Miller Grant” to help offset travel and lodging costs, as well as a free conference ticket. In its first year, the fund helped send six dad bloggers to Dad 2.015 in San Francisco. The following year, the number of recipients nearly tripled.

We’ve also set up a donation site for anyone who would like to contribute, and every conference ticket offers the buyer the option to add a $20 donation to the fund.

To apply for a Miller Grant, fill in the form below. The deadline is Wednesday, November 16; winners will be selected at random and announced on Monday, November 21. Good luck!
