Our goal is to make the Story Workshop a realistic option for people who have been unable to attend due to cost. Scholarships will be offered based on demonstrated financial need with a focus on diverse voices, people of color, and those who have been historically underrepresented as makers of public media. Qualification for the Scholarship is considered once the applicant is accepted to the Workshop. For now, Scholarship funds are available only to people living in the U.S.

Transom is prepared to pay one or more partial Scholarships, and one full Scholarship, if an accepted applicant requires it. A full scholarship includes tuition, housing, group meals, travel to and from Woods Hole and a possible stipend.  

You may apply for a Scholarship at the same time you apply for the Workshop. Please submit your Workshop application before you submit your Scholarship application. You can find general information about the Workshop here and your can visit our FAQ here. Applications and materials are due on June 2nd at 11:59 P.M. EST. If you have any questions along the way, you can reach us at info [at] transom [dot] org.
