Applications and donations for scholarships to the annual Dad 2.0 Summit conference are now being accepted.
The Oren Miller Scholarships, a $500 stipend to offset travel and lodging costs, also include a free ticket, valued at $249, to conference scheduled for Feb. 21-23, 2019, in San Antonio, Texas.
Dad 2.0 Summit bills itself as “an open conversation about the commercial power of dads online, and an opportunity to learn the tools and tactics used by influential bloggers to create high-quality content, build personal brands, and develop business ideas.” However, the conference — now entering its eighth year — is as much about the navigating fatherhood, now and in the future, and serves as a parenting inspiration for many attendees, such as 2018 scholarship recipient and NYC Dads Group co-organizer James Lopez.
Major brands such as Dove Men+Care, Best Buy and Lego have been sponsors and attendees at Dad 2.0. in recent years. Speakers have featured sports and media stars such as football Hall of Famers Michael Strahan and Ronnie Lott, best-selling author Brad Meltzer and TV producer Jason Katims.
City Dads Group has been major supporter of Dad 2.0 over the years, including a $2,500 donation toward scholarships last year. The conference draws members from our chapters all over the United States to be attendees and presenters.
