Generous support from friends of the Workshop provide numerous full and partial scholarships to writers across the region demonstrating financial need. For 2020, more than $6,000 was distributed thanks to more than 125 supporters.
To apply for a scholarship, please submit a letter providing a statement of purpose, which should not exceed 750 words.
Additionally, please arrange for a recommender to send a letter attesting to the strength of your work and your level of commitment.
Your statement and reference should be sent in a single email, with the subject “AWW 2021 Scholarship” to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1.
Please note that you must still formally apply to the workshop and submit your deposit prior to the May 1 deadline in addition to completing a scholarship application.
