Up to twenty full scholarships are available for teachers and librarians who wish to attend our annual Seminar. We seek a diverse group of individuals who are making a positive impact upon readers in their communities; and we hope that participation in our literary community will inspire fresh engagement with literature in schools and libraries around the country.
Scholarship recipients will gain exposure to contemporary authors and texts, expand their professional network of teachers, librarians, and writers, and be inspired to bring new ideas to the institutions and communities they serve. Through tours of the Key West Public Library and its archives and visits to historical sites, they will engage with the local resources and history that animate the KWLS mission.
Scholarship packages include a full waiver of the Seminar registration fee of $575, and need-based financial assistance to offset lodging costs.
Priority will be given to those who have not previously received KWLS support.
We are now accepting scholarship applications for the 2018 Seminar. The deadline for applications will be June 15, 2017.
