Scholarships + Financial Aid

Thank you for your interest in volunteering and financial aid!
  • 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. To apply, please fill out this form: 
Our volunteer coordinator, Liz Yaelingh-Scoffins, 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 Liz at

  • Room Scholarship: A limited number of scholarships are also available for a discounted room at the conference hotel. If accepted, recipients would be required to pay $35 per night for space in a room that has 2 double beds and would share this space with another conference attendee.

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 and have more than 2 persons to a room, 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.

Room scholarships are currently closed. Thank you for everyone that applied. 

  • Reduced Limited-Means Registration: This option is available to all with no volunteer requirement and it operates on the honor system. We trust that as a feminist conference that sustains a feminist organization, all participants will contribute financially to the organization consistent with their ability level.
