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.

Currently, we have scholarships available for our Mentorship Program, as well as for SCBWI International memberships and the Passport to our Professional Meeting Series.

To apply for a Membership or Passport 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 1, 2019.

Winners will be notified in time to participate in our kick-off on October 12.
