Conference Scholarship Program

About the Conference Scholarship Program

The AWP Conference Scholarship launched in 2021 and provided 90-plus applicants with a free registration to #AWP21. The scholarship aims to increase access to the annual conference and bookfair for those who identify as people of color, disabled, LGBTQIA+, and/or low-income. For #AWP23, 75% of conference scholarships will be awarded to local Seattle residents.
