Since the Highlights Foundation Scholarship Program was first established in 1988, more than 200 scholarships have been awarded to applicants who wish to attend the Foundation's Annual Childrens Writers Workshop at Chautauqua, New York. These scholarships are forged out of the truest ideals of our mission statement and help to make the experience of Chautauqua possible for many individuals who might otherwise not have the opportunity or the resources to participate. Individuals with a serious interest in writing for children and who have an established financial need are invited to apply. Scholarship applications are evaluated on an ongoing basis by the Highlights Foundation Scholarship Committee. Scholarships vary in the stipend awarded depending on an applicant's requirements and the funds available. Funds for scholarships come from two sources: a Foundation Endowment Fund or scholarships that are funded annually by donors. The Foundation strongly advises scholarship candidates to submit their application forms at the earliest possible date. Application materials for the 2003 Writers Workshop at Chautauqua must be postmarked by February 14th, 2003. All scholarships will be awarded by March 14th, 2003.
