Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships


SCBWI Florida has three scholarships available for the conference portion only for our Florida Annual Regional Conference January 16-17, 2021. The scholarships have been designated for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and underrepresented authors and illustrators who are creating in their own voices. Our goal is to support these own-voice creators on their publishing journeys. These scholarships will cover the cost of the conference, not critiques.

To apply, please email your name; contact information; where you fit in the BIPOC and underrepresented designation; and tell us what you are working on in your creative journey and how it relates to or represents your own voice and your community.  Send your request to

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Those who have already registered for the conference may also apply for the scholarship for the conference fee only.
