Full (two-day) and Partial (single day) Conference Scholarships are available for qualifying applicants. Lodging and extra tickets, lunches, or workshops are not included. Membership in OWFI is not required, but suggested. Applications for scholarships must be received not later than March 1, with notification of selection by March 15.
All candidates must complete this application form and include a statement saying why they would like to attend. Previous scholarship recipients will be considered, if funding is available after new applications have been reviewed.
The OWFI Silent Auction (Basket Bonanza, previously Basket Wars) project raises funds for the next year’s scholarship; therefore, each recipient must agree to volunteer at the auction tables during the conference—one hour for a single day scholarship or two hours for both days. Scholarships do not include hotel room or extra workshops. Failure to show up at appointed time for volunteer work will result in the recipient being ineligible for Scholarship ever again.
