Both awards are tied to conference acceptance. Applicants need to be student, professional or institutional SWCA members before the first day of the annual SWCA conference. Awards are named in honor of our organizational founders. Anonymized proposals will be read and ranked by SWCA committee members, and scholarship winners will be announced in January. Award winners may also be noted in conference materials and on the SWCA web site.
