BV SCBWI Scholarships for winter conference


Amplifying Unsung Voices

Our Amplifying Unsung Voices scholarship program is a key part of Brazos Valley SCBWI’s mission to help our regional membership become as diverse as Texas itself. The scholarships are open to members and non-members who self-identify with populations traditionally underrepresented within children’s literature/publishing. The first AUV scholarship was awarded during the 2020 Leap into Kidlit Conference (thanks to the generosity of founding SCBWI Brazos Valley member Kathi Appelt, we were able to offer an additional scholarship). Another AUV scholarship is being awarded for the 2021 SCBWI Winter Conference.

BV Member Scholarship

At Brazos Valley SCBWI we believe in investing in our members! This scholarship has been awarded to regional members in order to help them attend SCBWI’s Winter and Summer conferences.
