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.
