The Jack W. Swanson Scholarship was established in 2013 to bring book publishing interns or first- or second-year publishing-house employees to a PubWest conference. The scholarship is funded from the sale of rights and by royalties from Rail Ventures and by private donations from PubWest members who wish to encourage the next generation of book publishers.
The scholarship covers full conference tuition travel, lodging, conference intensives, and other optional events. Only one applicant will be chosen for the scholarship each Conference. Other scholarships may be awarded, but recipients will need to cover their own travel, lodging, conference intensives, or other optional events.
To apply for the scholarship to PUBWEST 2015, send a letter of introduction explaining your professional/academic background and why you’re interested in a book-publishing career, along with a letter of support from one professional or academic reference.
Please send applications to: Scholarship Committee, PubWest, 17501 Hill Way, Lake Oswego, OR 97035.
Applications must be received by January 15, 2015.
