Austin Bat Cave is a creative community. The fees from ABC’s adult writing workshops are used to both subsidize our programs for young people and pay adult workshop instructors. Because we want our courses to be accessible to writers of all backgrounds and income-levels, we’ve reserved a limited number of seats in each class for scholarships. Scholarships cover 100 precent of tuition-fees, and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
We especially encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ writers to apply, though all are welcome. We do not ask for financial information or outside documents.
To apply for a scholarship, please fill out the application below, and ABC’s Adult Program & Fundraising Manager, Emily, will reach out with information on how to claim your spot. Demographic and biographical questions are completely optional; answers to these questions will be kept confidential and used solely for internal purposes.
Should all the scholarships in any given workshop be awarded, additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Due to high demand, we ask that writers apply for one workshop per semester. (However, if there are additional classes you are interested in, we are happy to put you on a waiting list.)
