FAWC Scholar Awards
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.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to offer a variable number of scholarships for each of our online sessions. We are proud to offer our scholarships in partnership with a variety of nonprofits that serve writers from historically marginalized communities. In the past we have collaborated with Cave Canem, the Institute for American Indian Arts, Kundiman, and Lambda Literary to offer scholarships.
