Members of the Saskatchewan Farm Writers Association can access financial support to attend conferences or undertake professional development through the following:
SFWA Executive has decided to provide four bursaries for 2022.
- Two $750.00 bursaries for attending CFWF that will be held in Regina September 29 – October 1, 2022 and
- Two $2000.00 bursaries for attending IFAJ that will be held in Denmark June 27 – July 3, 2022.
In order to be considered to receive a bursary from SFWA, a Saskatchewan Farm Writers Association member must be in good standing. The recipient will present info about their trip at a future SFWA/CFWF event (in person or virtual). If three people apply, priority will be given to members who have not attended IFAJ/CFWF already — otherwise recipients will be selected via a random draw. Please indicate which bursary you are applying for.
- Application deadline for the IFAJ bursary is March 1, 2022.
- Application deadline for CFWF bursary is June 3, 2022.
