Memoir Incubator Scholarship Applicants

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the Memoir Incubator.

We strive to locate support for our program participants who need it, and may be able to offer awardees 25%-100% support, depending on our funding in a given year, and the number of successful applicants. Thanks to the generous support of the Pechet Foundation, we are able to award one or two scholarships in honor of Pauline Scheer.

We are also able to award merit-based scholarships thanks to the Judy Layzer Memorial Fund.

In order to be considered for one of our scholarships, please fill out this Scholarship Application. Only one application is necessary to be considered for any of our funding options. Applicants can expect notification via email from the Scholarship Committee approximately one week after acceptance into the program. While all Memoir Incubator applicants can expect to be notified of their standing by the Memoir Incubator Selection Committee, applicants not accepted into the program will not receive a separate notification from the Scholarship Committee.

If you have any questions, please email
