2023 Conference Community 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, disabled, LGBTQIA+, and/or low-income to apply. Membership is not required to apply.

The AWP Community Scholarship launched in 2021, and since then hundreds of writers have been able to attend the conference at no cost, or a significantly reduced cost.

The deadline to apply to the AWP Community Scholarship for #AWP23 has passed.

If you have already applied for a scholarship, your application is under review and you will be notified in early January of your application status. Please do not purchase a registration before receiving this notification as all purchases are nonrefundable.
