SPI Scholarships and Fellowships

Please note: Before requesting an application for either the SPI scholarship or the Winston Fellowship, you must have a fully completed SPI application on file with the SPI office. Complete the SPI application, if you have not yet done so.

Matching Scholarships

SPI has a small scholarship fund available to help promising applicants attend an additional session of SPI. These scholarships require the participant to fully fund their transportation and all expenses for at least one session of SPI. The scholarship will then cover the cost of lodging and training for an additional session. The participant is responsible for all other expenses during the scholarship session.
