Give A Scholarship, Transform A Life

The Fine Arts Work Center invites you to give the gift of a scholarship for a Summer Program workshop in creative writing or visual arts or for 24PearlStreet, our innovative online writing program. Your generous donation will make it possible for a writer or artist to participate in a workshop who otherwise would not have the funds to do so – providing them with the possibility of a life transforming experience.

Scholarships are crucial to increasing the diversity and vibrancy of our student population, attracting younger students and fostering a wide range of dialogue and creative outcomes.

Participating in a diverse community at FAWC was thrilling. As a writer of color it made a huge difference that there was an effort made to create a wider representation of culture, heritage, gender & politic. It was such a gift. Scholarship Recipient 2016

The Fine Arts Work Center is far more than a place to take a class. It is a sacred center of learning, of creating, of unfolding into the possibility of who we are as artists. I am eternally grateful. Scholarship Recipient 2016.

An annual donation will fund one full-tuition scholarship a year. You may also endow a scholarship in perpetuity.
