What do we mean by a "diverse writer”? Diversity includes a range of experiences from things like gender, sexual orientation, and race, to religion, abilities, and economic background — anything that lends a different lens through which a writer might view (and therefore respond to) the world.

Please note: All scholarship funds will be allocated by June 1, and no scholarship applications will be taken after the May 1 deadline.
