Tribute Fund


The SCBWI Tribute Fund commemorates members of the children’s book community, their lives, and their work by funding all-expense scholarships to the SCBWI International Summer and Winter Conferences for the general membership (Intensives and Critiques/Roundtables not included). Contributions may be  tax deductible and we are happy to provide you with a donor letter. Please consult your tax professional.


Scholarships from the tribute fund are not applied for, rather Regional Advisors nominate members from their region who are on the verge of a breaktrough, have given a significant contribution to their region, and could not afford to attend the conference otherwise. SCBWI reserves the right not to award this in any year.
