SF South Scholar-in-Residence Program

CLOSED

The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for scholarship, productivity, and creativity while creating a platform for meaningful interaction with regional members and guests.

SF South is interested in supporting the Scholar’s ability to delve deeper into the craft of writing or illustrating while completing a related project during the period of the residence.

SF South is committed to supporting Scholars-in-Residence who would be able to make a significant contribution to the world of children’s literature. Scholars-in-Residence will receive a stipend as well as tuition grants to all regional events and a limited number of SCBWI national events during the period of their residence.

Mid-way through the residency, scholars will present a craft-focused educational lecture to the region on the topic of their choice. Scholars will conclude the residency with a second lecture summarizing their learnings and the results of their work.
