The Horror Writers Association Scholarship will be open to all horror writers (HWA membership is not a requirement).
The first Scholarships were awarded in 2014. Thereafter, the Scholarships are given annually. Scholarships are designed to assist in the professional development of horror writers.
The application for each Scholarship will be the same – a sub-Committee of the HWA Board will choose the winners, who will be announced each year.
The HWA and Mary Shelley Scholarships are each worth $2500, which may be spent on approved writing education over the two years following the granting of the scholarship. Exclusions may apply.
Those who are interested in applying are advised to review the general rules before proceeding. One cannot be eligible for the same scholarship, grant, or endowment 2 years in a row.
The HWA Scholarship is made by possible by monies received by HWA from the Authors Coalition.
