Passport Series Scholarships


SCBWI Western Washington is committed to providing low-cost and free programming to writers and illustrators in the greater Seattle area. Scholarships are available when possible and may include SCBWI International annual membership dues, or funds to attend local events.


This year, SCBWI WWA is pleased to offer Passport Series scholarships to those who might otherwise find it difficult to afford our meetings and webinars. Apply to enjoy a full year of amazing programming free of charge!


To apply for a Passport Series scholarship, please send us a 250-word cover letter explaining why you’d like to be considered for a scholarship, and a 250-word pitch for your work-in-progress (illustrators may provide up to 5 PDF samples). Email your application to by September 30, 2018.


Winners will be notified in time to participate in our Editor Extravaganza October 13 with Tiffany Liao.
