Scholarships for those in financial need are available for each workshop offered by Lake Superior Writers, thanks to generous donations made to the LSW Donna Schilling Scholarship Fund.

Scholarships will be administered as follows:

For nonmembers, a scholarship will also include a membership to LSW that will be current for the program year in which the workshop takes place. LSW’s program year runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.
  • Scholarships are available to both LSW members and nonmembers.
  • A scholarship may be used by an individual only once during a program year.
