2022 Conference Scholarship Program

The AWP Community Scholarship Program aims to increase access to the annual conference and bookfair. While anyone may apply, AWP encourages those who identify as people of color, people with disabilities, and/or are low-income to apply. Membership is not required to apply.

The AWP Community Scholarship launched in 2021 and provided all 90+ applicants a free registration to #AWP21. AWP is grateful to the generosity of donors who made these scholarships possible.

Help us support fellow AWP members and conference attendees by donating a registration to the AWP Community Scholarship!

The deadline to apply for an AWP registration scholarship is December 17, 2021. All applicants will be notified of a decision by mid-January 2022. Registration includes admission to AWP’s bookfair, meetings, panels, readings, and public receptions for the duration of the conference period. Please wait until you are notified of a decision before making a purchase for registration. All sales are final and nonrefundable. Individuals who purchase a registration cannot be reimbursed and are ineligible for a scholarship.

When an individual is notified they have received a scholarship, registration details will be provided.

Should you have any questions, please email Registration and Diversity & Inclusion Coordinator Chelsea McLin at registration@awpwriter.org.
