Our Scholarship Program
The Highlights Foundation is a public, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. We receive support from a number of individuals who believe in our mission, several publishing companies, and writers’ organizations. The majority of our named scholarship funds are endowed. Our scholarship-aid program serves those who may not be able to bear the costs of our workshops. It has provided financial aid for more than 600 writers and illustrators to attend our workshops.
Scholarships are awarded on the following criteria.
