treeWe know conferences, retreats, and other events can be expensive, so SCBWI Oregon offers a number of scholarships each year. They are open to writer, illustrator, or writer/illustrator members of SCBWI who reside in Oregon or Clark County, Washington only.

Funding for scholarships come from donations, faculty members asking for their honorariums to go to scholarships, and from the Oregon SCBWI budget.
