The Crime Writers’ Association

CWA Bursaries Available for 2020

As the whole world is going through difficult times, we understand that some of our members or authors hoping to apply for membership might find the cost prohibitive. However, we do not want the lack of financial resources to stand in your way. The CWA offers a range of bursaries for both new and existing members. These bursaries provide full or partial funding towards membership, CWA conference or CrimeFest attendance for members whose financial circumstances might prevent them from re-joining the Association or attending an event. We currently offer 18 bursaries and around 2/3 of them are still available for 2020. There are bursaries for young people, not-so-young people and eternally young people, as well as bursaries for authors living domestically or abroad. The bursaries are provided by generous donations from existing CWA members or friends of the CWA. Some of the bursaries are tailored to specific sub-genre of crime writing, while others are open to anyone. Some are open to existing members only. Do check them out and pass on the link to anyone you think might benefit. Click here for more information.
