The Highlights Foundation

The Highlights Foundation offers a number of scholarships to our programs. In addition to the General Scholarship Funds, there are a number of Named Funds honoring those who have had a significant impact on children’s literature. In addition, some funds have been donated in honor of loved ones.

Scholarship deadlines for each workshop can be found on the workshop description page. The scholarship committee awards full and partial scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded on the following criteria:
• Seriousness of purpose: A brief questionnaire asks about the time and effort you devote to your craft.
• Talent: A writing sample speaks to your talent.
• Financial need: Scholarship support is provided to those who may not otherwise be able to afford the cost of tuition.
