We know the conferences and retreats are expensive, so SCBWI Oregon offers a number of scholarships each year. They are open to writer, illustrator, or writer/illustrator members of SCBWI who resides in Oregon or Clark County Washington only.
Funding for scholarships was made possible by a donation in memory of Dolores Barnes (Barb Herkert’s mom), a teacher for over 30 years who believed in the power of books to change children’s lives.
2018 Scholarships Are Available for the Following Events:
Spring Conference—May 19-20, 2018
Scholarship Deadline: February 5, 2018
Fall Retreat—September 20-23, 2018
