Grants and Awards

There are numerous grants, awards, and other opportunities available to children’s writers and illustrators. Below, we have provided links to three categories of grants and awards.

Deadlines for Grants and Awards can be found on the individual grant pages/websites, however, SCBWI Canada East also tries to give its members a heads-up by including grant deadline reminders in Quick Notes, so look for our monthly e-newsletter in your inboxes on the first of every month.
