Registration Scholarships for K12 Educators
Thanks to a generous gift from Phyllis Gottesfeld Knight of Denver, the Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Western is pleased to offer several general registration scholarships to K-12 educators who wish to attend the Symposium on Poetry Criticism as part of Writing the Rockies this summer.
Each scholarship is for $250, reducing the cost of tuition for the conference to just $100.
Applicants must submit a completed scholarship application form (available here), along with a formal request for the Symposium Educator's Scholarship, and a letter, on letterhead, from an administrator affirming their employment at any educational institution, public or private, at any level from primary school through high school.
Please fill out all materials and send them in pdf format to ExtendedStudies@western.edu.
Once we have processed your scholarship application, we will provide you with a scholarship code that will enable you to register on the storefront. Numbers are limited -- please apply early.
American Arts Quarterly Scholarships
Writing the Rockies is pleased to announce several scholarships for those planning on enrolling in the three-day intensive poetry workshop “From Muse to Muse: Poetry Inspired by Visual Art,” led by Meredith Bergmann. These scholarships are made possible by a gift from American Arts Quarterly.
The cost of the workshop is $250, and scholarships range from $100 to $250.
Applicants must submit a letter requesting the funds, indicating their background and interest in the subject. Please send materials in pdf format to ExtendedStudies@western.edu and to Conference Director David J. Rothman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
