OWAA’s John Madson Fellowship provides funding to attend educational opportunities, including the OWAA annual conference and Goldenrod Writing Workshop. Educational programs do not have to be OWAA-organized programs. The fellowship is funded through the John Madson Fellowship Fund, an endowment that thrives primarily through OWAA member contributions and fundraising efforts. Its goal is to enhance professional communication skills for as many members as possible. After attending the OWAA annual conference, Goldenrod Writing Workshop or other educational programs, fellowship recipients will submit receipts for reimbursement. Miscellaneous expenses must be itemized.
