Educator Registration Scholarships

Five scholarships for educators to attend the Poetry Symposium at WtR

Thanks to a generous private donation from Phyllis Gottesfeld Knight of Denver that has been matched by Western State Colorado University, the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Western is pleased to offer five scholarships to educators who wish to attend the Symposium on Poetry Criticism as part of the conference Writing the Rockies this summer.

Each scholarship is for $200, reducing the cost of tuition for the conference to just $150.

Applicants should submit a formal request for the Symposium Educator's Scholarship along with a letter, on letterhead, from an administrator affirming their employment at any educational institution, public or private, at any level from primary school through university. Teachers attending the Symposium can earn one credit in “ENG 510” which is run through the Western Teachers Institute, administered by Western's Extended Studies Office.
