Criteria for consideration

There are two scholarships that are open exclusively to those applying for the School for Writers Summer Workshop:

  • Kobzar Writer’s Scholarship: ($849) offered by the Shevchenko Foundation to a Canadian writer whose narrative develops with a Canadian Ukrainian theme.
  • Wayson Choy Scholarship: ($849) is intended for emerging gay writers of Asian origin writing on any theme.

To apply for these scholarships, please state your wish to apply prominently in your cover letter and check the scholarship box on the application form.

The scholarship amount, if awarded, will be paid by cheque after the workshop is over. Late applicants may find that scholarship funds have already been awarded.
