Amplifying Unsung Voices

Our Amplifying Unsung Voices scholarship program is a key part of Brazos Valley SCBWI’s mission to help our regional membership become as diverse as Texas itself. The scholarships are open to members and non-members who self-identify with populations traditionally underrepresented within children’s literature/publishing. The first AUV scholarship was awarded during the 2020 Leap into Kidlit Conference (thanks to the generosity of founding SCBWI Brazos Valley member Kathi Appelt, we were able to offer an additional scholarship). This is generally offered for the SCBWI Summer conference, Winter conference and there are plans to include it in the new All Texas Regions conference.
