Highlights Foundation Scholarships

The Highlights Foundation offers a number of scholarships to our programs. In addition to the General Scholarships, there are a number of Special Scholarships in support of specific recipients or workshops, and Named Funds honoring those who have had a significant impact on children’s literature. You can see a full list of these below.

Awards will be based on the following criteria:

  • Seriousness of purpose, including time and effort devoted to craft.
  • Talent displayed via a writing or art sample.
  • and Financial need.
