IBPA Takes Applications Online For Pub U Scholarship

PubUcrowdIBPA’s Affiliate Scholarship Program offers members of Book Publishers Northwest an opportunity to attend IBPA’s annual Publishing University for free (a $400 value).

IBPA awards one complimentary scholarship each year to attend Publishing University. BPNW consistently has sent a Pub U Scholar for more than a decade.

For the 2014 Publishing University, which will be held in San Francisco, scholarship applications will be accepted online only.

The Pub U scholarship is intended for independent publishers and self-published authors who need assistance in growing their publishing program. The recipient will be able to attend Publishing University at no charge. All food functions and special events are included.

PubU_2014_PubUIn evaluating applicants, IBPA will consider how the scholarship will assist the recipient to become a successful publisher.

The 2014 scholarship recipient also is required to share what they learned at Publishing University with their fellow BPNW members. Upon completion of that requirement, BPNW will award the 2014 scholarship recipient an additional $200 grant to help recoup costs of travel to Pub U. This grant is contingent upon the successful fulfillment of the “share requirement” as determined by the BPNW Board:  it can be speaking at a meeting, writing article(s), or other activity as proposed by the scholarship recipient and approved by BPNW.

Applications for the 2014 Publishing University Scholarship are due by January 15, 2014. Please apply here.

Note: Scholarship applicants must be both a 2014 member of IBPA and BPNW.  To learn more about other benefits of membership, please see our Join Us page.
