Conference Scholarships

Scholarship Application | Donation Form

RMFW is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships to help members attend conference who would otherwise be unable to join us. We also accept donations to help fellow members attend conference. Scholarships will be awarded to RMFW members in good standing on the basis of stated financial need. Scholarships will cover the regular conference fee, not including hotel room costs or add-ons. The Application period is open June 1 through June 30.

You will need the following information to apply:

  • Personal information (name, email, phone number)
  • A 250-500 word essay telling the committee why you wish to attend Colorado Gold, what you hope to gain from it as a writer/author, how you think attending Colorado Gold will help you achieve your writing goals in the coming year, and your financial need.

You will be asked to assist with volunteer duties in exchange for your scholarship. We encourage scholarship recipients to volunteer as a way to get more deeply involved in the conference and gain even more benefit from the time spent there.

RMFW also accepts donations to help fund scholarship. If you would like to donate, CLICK HERE for instructions. Note that scholarship donations are not tax deductible.
