One of our missions at the Children's Book Academy is to reach out and provide opportunities for all creatives. This includes free opportunities to learn through our engaging webinars, fun contests with prizes, and scholarships to help those in achieving their professional goals. Our scholarships are designed to help bring more diversity of all kinds into the children's literature field and are currently offered to folks who identify as LBQTI, having a disability, being a person of color, or being low income. In addition, we also invite SCBWI RAs, ARAs, and ICs to apply, whether or not they identify with the above, because they do so much for our community. Please peruse our past and current offerings. To get first notice of these opportunities, please sign up for our not too frequent but often helpful newsletter here.
