Scholarship Application: Traveling Workshops Winter 2019 - 2020




Our goal is to make attending a Traveling 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.

Traveling Workshop scholarships are made up to the following maximum amounts: $2,500 for non-local students and $2,000 for local students (i.e. commuting to the Workshop from home) and are meant to cover tuition plus provide additional housing, travel and/or walking around money.

Scholarship applicants are required to complete both a Workshop application and a Scholarship application. Both have the same deadline. We ask you to complete and submit your application to the Workshop first. If you are applying to Workshops in multiple locations, you will need to complete Workshop applications for each one. All materials are due on August 30th at 11:59 P.M. EDT. If you have any questions along the way, you can reach us at info [at] transom [dot] org.
