Deadline: 29 June 2012
The UCLA Extension Writers' Program Scholarship* seeks to acknowledge and foster the talent of promising writers from diverse backgrounds and cultures who might otherwise not have the opportunity to study their craft in a supportive educational environment. Ten scholars are named annually, and each of the ten recipients is given the opportunity to enroll in three full-length Writers' Program courses during a one-year period (the Writers Studio, mentorships, master classes, and 20-week courses are excluded). Courses may be taken either onsite or online but cannot be deferred for any reason.
In order to be considered eligible for the UCLA Extension Writers' Program Scholarship, applicants must have:
-- A gross income not to exceed $2500 a month per individual. For households with more than one individual, add 10% for each additional person.
-- Proof of U.S. Citizenship
The following applicants are considered ineligible:
-- UCLA Extension employees and their family members or dependents
-- MA, MFA, and PhD graduates in Creative Writing, Screenwriting, Literature, or Journalism
-- Students currently pursuing a BA, MA, or MFA degree in any field
-- International students
Application packets for 2012-13 will be available in the beginning of March. The deadline to apply for the 2012-13 program is June 29, 2012.
