You do need to be a member of IWCA to apply for the IWCA awards, but you do NOT need to be a member for the NCPTW awards. There are two opportunities within the NCPTW awards:

Emerging Scholar Awards: up to $500 each. This grant supports tutors who are making significant contributions to the local, regional, or (inter)national scholarly conversation about peer tutoring through their daily practices and reflections on that practice; through mentoring and/or administrative duties in their home writing centers; through presentations at conferences or elsewhere; through research and publication; or in other ways. In their application letters, applicants for an Emerging Scholar Award must address how they are contributing to the conversation about peer tutoring. Grants of up to $500 will be awarded in this category. Lower amounts may be awarded based on the applicant pool and availability of funds.

NCPTW Trustees Awards: up to $500 each. This grant supports tutors who are contributing in significant ways to writing center pedagogy and theory and are from institutions that are typically underrepresented at NCPTW conferences, including historically black, Hispanic-serving, or tribal colleges and universities; secondary schools and two-year colleges; and schools for the blind or deaf. The grant may also support tutors traveling to the conference from outside the U.S. and tutors from historically underrepresented groups, including LGBTQ tutors, tutors with a disability, and tutors who self-identify with one or more of the following races/ethnicities: American Indian or Alaskan Native; Asian; Black or African American; Mexican American, Puerto Rican, other Latino/a; Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander. The purpose of this grant is to facilitate the inclusion of a range of diverse voices and perspectives at our conference, and to support the travel of tutors who might not otherwise be able to attend. Applicants must indicate their eligibility on the application form to be considered for this grant. Grants of up to $500 will be awarded in this category. Lower amounts may be awarded based on the applicant pool and availability of funds.
