Scholarships for African American Writers
The Fine Arts Work Center is committed to increasing access to our 24PearlStreet online writing workshops for young people, people with low incomes, and individuals from BIPOC, AAPI, LGBTQ+, and other historically underserved communities.
For our 2023 Summer Session, we are collaborating with Cave Canem, a nonprofit organization committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American writers, to provide 7 scholarships, worth $600 each, for African American writers to attend any online Summer Session workshop.

“Beyond degree-granting programs, no workshops of this caliber are offered in the area where I live. While I might sometimes be able to travel to attend a one-week workshop in person, I would rather have an experience that lasts several weeks. Online classes make this possible.”
