If you're a regular Bilerico reader, you've seen the posts from me (and other contributors) about attending the Netroots Nation conference and the incredible experiences we've had there. Now you have a chance to join in the fun.

Every year, contributor and LGBT advocate extraordinaire Mike Rogers hosts the Netroots Connect LGBT pre-conference on the day before Netroots officially begins. Many of the top bloggers, grassroots organizers, social media mavens, and organizational staff come together for a day-long informative and interactive event that is out of this world.

Netroots is being held in Detroit, Michigan from July 16th through the 20th and you can get a scholarship to attend both events for free! The scholarship helps to cover your airfare, hotel accommodations, registration fees for both Netroots and the LGBT pre-con, and possibly a per diem if purchasing food will be a financial hardship.

You can apply for a scholarship here, but hurry. The deadline is tomorrow -- Wednesday, May 21st.
