Caxton Club Scholarship

The Caxton Club, an organization devoted to “the literary study and promotion of the arts pertaining to the production of books,” offers a $2,500 scholarship for a deserving, talented individual in the Midwest with professional interests in bibliography, book history, or the book arts, to attend a course at Rare Book School.

The successful applicant must live in one of the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, or Wisconsin. The award will fund tuition as well as travel and housing costs, up to a total of $2,500.

Applications will be accepted directly by RBS. To apply, please submit an RBS scholarship application by the 1 November deadline. See the main scholarship page for application instructions. Scholarship applicants will be considered for all awards for which they are eligible.
