Story Workshop Scholarship
We are also pleased to announce the Story Workshop Scholarship. Our goal is to make the Story Workshop a realistic option for people who have been unable to attend due to cost. Thanks to This American Life, as well as sponsorship from MailChimp, a few individual major donors, and contributions from alumni and other supporters, we are now able to offer accepted applicants partial scholarships and up to one full scholarship if an applicant requires it.
Scholarships will be offered based on financial need with a focus on diverse voices, people of color, and those who have been historically under-represented as makers of public media. Qualification for the Scholarship is considered once the applicant is accepted to the Workshop. For now, Scholarship funds are available only to people living in the U.S.
Scholarship applications are due November 28th by midnight EST. We ask you to complete and submit your application to the Workshop first.
