Can TED offer scholarships or greatly reduced fees to the TED conference?
The conference fees are really high and I'm concerned that it prohibits young people (in their late teens and 20s) from getting involved. I can understand that charging high fees helps raise funds and also helps attract people who have the financial capacity and power to fund important initiatives, however it's equally as important to invite younger people into the mix - they are the next generation and also can be the "boots on the street" for executing on big ideas.
