Previous ZL(u)Cs have been attended primarily, though not exclusively, by white, able-bodied cisgender women in their 20s-40. We will consider applications from people from additional underrepresented groups, as well as POC. Scholarship winners may spend the money however they need to, e.g., airfare, childcare, food, etc. The <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">scholarship application</a> is now closed, since we have passed the May 31, 2013 deadline. We have $680 for a scholarship or scholarships to attend this conference, but would love to raise another $1000 so we can fund more applicants. <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">Email Jenna</a> if there's anything else you need to know. If you want to contribute to the fund, PayPal the dough to <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">Jenna at a different address</a> If you hate PayPal, contact Jenna about mailing her a check. If you hate email, Jenna's postal address isn't super hard to find on the internet.

According the Google Maps, it is a 0.5mi walk to the UI Main Library and 0.8mi to ps·z, our two main venues. Quad is a traditional dorm layout -- rooms opening to a central hall and shared bathroom with shower facilities. Bring yer flip-flops! Quad will have linens and a mini cube fridge and microwave in each room. We are scheduled for Fri., July 12-Mon., July 15. Parking is available, but not super close. Quad is served hourly by the <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">Oakcrest Night &amp; Weekend</a> bus route on Saturday. Iowa City is kinda lame and doesn't have public transit service on Sundays. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. Unfortunately we can only accept payment in advance by check or money order, due at a later date before the conference. More instructions, advice, etc. on payment and arrangements will be sent to prospective dorm dwellers. <h2 id="toc3"><a name="Housing-Hotels and B&amp;Bs"></a>Hotels and B&amp;Bs</h2> The hotel and B&amp;Bs listed below are locally-run, walkable to the ZL(u)C venues, and appear to be fairly affordable. We do not have any arrangements with any of them and cannot guarantee availability. Other lodging is available in the Iowa City area -- farther away, more expensive, and/or national chains.

It serves <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">MegaBus</a> and <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">Burlington Trailways</a> lines, connecting to Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha, and several smaller towns in Iowa. Depending on how much in advance you buy your ticket, the R/T price from Chicago can range from about $5-$100. Burlington Trailways seems to be about $50 R/T from Chicago. <h3 id="toc2"><a name="x-Information about getting to Iowa City and back again.-Trains"></a>Trains</h3> The nearest Amtrak station is in <a class="wiki_link_ext" href=";code=MTP" rel="nofollow">Mt. Pleasant</a>, which is about an hour’s drive south from Iowa City. Burlington Trailways does offer lines up from Mt. Pleasant. <h3 id="toc3"><a name="x-Information about getting to Iowa City and back again.-Airplanes"></a>Airplanes</h3> <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">Eastern Iowa Airport (CID)</a> is in Cedar Rapids, about a half-hour from Iowa City. A taxi costs about 35 bucks. There is a Burlington Trailways bus that costs $15 R/T, but with <span class="GINGER_SOFATWARE_correct">very limited schedule</span>. We could possibly also go pick people up at the airport. Chicago (<a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">MDW</a> or <a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">ORD</a>) often offers cheaper flights. It is about 4-5 hours from Iowa City, depending on who is driving. You can get easily to the bus station from either airport using public transit. Depending on how advanced you purchase your ticket, the Megabus R/T price from Chicago can range from about $5-$100. Burlington Trailways seems to be about $50 R/T from Chicago. Des Moines (<a class="wiki_link_ext" href="" rel="nofollow">DSM</a>) is about 2 hours from Iowa City. The Megabus runs about $5 to maybe 20 bucks R/T, but it looks like you’d have to take a cab into town to get to the bus station. We haven’t tested this out. <h2 id="toc4"><a name="x-Transportation forum"></a><strong>Transportation forum</strong></h2> <strong>Are you driving in from somewhere and have some extra space in the car?
