UPDATE: The deadline is past for the 2018 scholarship.

OWC is pleased to announce two scholarships for the 31st Annual Conference at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon, April 13-15, 2018. These scholarships are made available by the M. K. Wren Estate fund and by anonymous donors.

  • 2018 M.K. Wren Scholarship
  • 2018 Demarginalizing Voices Scholarship

These scholarships will cover the registration fee for the 2018 OWC Annual Conference at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon. This includes all workshop sessions along with room and board at the Hotel; accommodations may be in a shared room. We will celebrate the winners online via our website, Facebook and Twitter, with photos and a bio of the winners.

Please apply byMarch 10, 2018.

Applicants do not need to be current OWC members, but scholarship winners, if not currently members, will need to join OWC for a $30 annual fee. Depending on where winners are coming from, we may be able to help facilitate carpool transportation, but this is not guaranteed at this time. We expect to announce winners mid-March.
