Thank you for your interest in attending TEDxJackson. Seating will be very limited, but because we believe in the importance of making our event available to a diverse range of community advocates and thought leaders, some of whom may not be able to afford our standard ticket price, we are making a small number of free tickets available to qualified individuals (subject to planning committee review and approval).

If you cannot afford to attend TEDxJackson but believe that you have an important role to play in Jackson’s future, we want you to submit an application. Scholarship tickets will be awarded based on financial need, community involvement, and your ability and interest in carrying out the TED spirit of “ideas worth spreading” for improving our city and state.

We will notify you of your scholarship application status on a rolling basis via email. If your application is accepted, we will reserve a seat for you at our event. Please note that scholarship reservations are non-transferable, and you will be asked to show ID at registration.
