Magi-Fest Youth Scholarship

Securing the future of magic with scholarships for young magicians.

Scholarships for magicians under the age of eighteen

We are pleased to bring back our Magi-Fest Youth Scholarship Program. The idea is simple: every young magician who wants to come to Magi-Fest should have the opportunity to come. And a lack of funds should never prevent anyone from enjoying this life-changing event. The Magi-Fest has changed the lives of so many people, and we’re eager for this convention to change the lives of the next generation of magic.

Our youth program is one of the brightest in magic, and we have a huge contingency of young, talented magicians that participate in our events, and in our special youth workshop.


How to apply for a scholarship

  • Write an essay (500 words minimum) on WHY you would like to attend the Columbus Magi-Fest and send it using the info below. Our Scholarship Board will review all submissions on October 15th, and select 30 recipients.

  • These recipients will receive a full scholarship for themselves and one parent (note: for legal reasons the guardian MUST be a relative) to attend the Magi-Fest for FREE.

  • Make sure to indicate if you have received the scholarship previously (this will not affect your chances at all) and whether you require further financial assistance for hotel. There is a limited fund that can help with accommodations on the basis of financial need.

  • You must be under eighteen on January 1st 2018 to apply. Closing date for applications is October 15th 2017.
