Thanks to the generosity of participants at previous SCBWI Canada East events, we’re pleased to offer financial assistance to one member to help defray the cost of attending the conference. To apply for the bursary, please submit a letter outlining what you hope to gain from this event. Please include a brief mention of why you need financial assistance.

Note: The bursary will not cover the entire cost of the conference.
