Thanks to a grant from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Impact Fund, this scholarship provides full tuition for a storyteller to attend a Highlights Foundation workshop on campus at the Highlights Foundation retreat center. The fund provides $1,500 per year so that after tuition, any remaining amount can be used for a travel or childcare stipend.

This scholarship is meant to support SCBWI’s commitment to equity and inclusion within children’s literature. The scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who self-identifies as coming from a historically marginalized or underrepresented group.

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
