The Hudson Valley Writers Center is proud to offer three scholarship opportunities: the Altman Person of Color Scholarship, the Need Based Scholarship, and the Karen Finley Need Based Scholarship for Women and Non-Binary Writers. All scholarships are awarded to writers in the United States on a first-come, first-served basis. They are applicable only to our one-day intensives. Applicants may be asked to provide proof of US residency. Please let us know via email ASAP if you are unable to attend the class for which you received a scholarship, so we can give the spot to another writer on the waitlist. We ask all writers eligible for multiple scholarships to register for only ONE scholarship every TWO months. Thank you.
Please note: these policies are in effect through the end of our Summer 2021 season. Please look for an update to our scholarship program beginning with our Fall 2021 season.
