Announcement: Kurt Brown WC&C Scholarships Discontinued

November 13, 2023

Dear AWP Community,

The Kurt Brown WC&C Scholarships program was instituted to highlight and support our member writers’ conferences and centers while providing opportunities for individuals to attend their programs. Due to a changing landscape over the past several years, it has become less effective in serving both WC&Cs and individuals. 

We are in the process of transforming our offerings to serve the many writing organizations that support and inspire writers through residencies, workshops, conferences, festivals, centers, and community groups. As part of the new initiatives we are developing, the Kurt Brown WC&C Scholarships program is being retired, effective immediately.

We thank those who have served as judges and the WC&Cs that have hosted our winners over the course of this program. We are grateful to Kurt Brown for bringing these crucial organizations into the AWP fold and will continue to honor his legacy as we move forward. 

Exciting changes are coming—stay tuned!
