Scholarships + Financial Aid



Thank you for your interest in volunteering and financial aid!

Applications are now closed.

Room Scholarship: A limited number of scholarships are also available for a discounted room at the conference hotel.  Contact Mala Matacin for more information at

Volunteer reduced registration: For students and/or those with limited means, AWP is able to offer limited reduced registration in exchange for 4-hour volunteer slots during the conference. Volunteer slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. 

Our volunteer coordinator, Dawn Bates, will follow up with you shortly to let you know if we are able to accommodate your request. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail Dawn at

Room rates are

$21/night for 4-person room
$42/night for 2-person room


Conference coordinators will assign roommates and will inform recipients of roommate name and contact information in order to help attendees coordinate room plans and needs. If groups of scholarship recipients would like to room together, this will need to be mutually agreed upon by all roommates prior to attending the conference. 

Preference will be given to individuals with limited means who are presenting at the conference.
