Use your writing skills to make some cash! I’ll post anytime I run across a scholarship opportunity & here’s the first one. Text taken from the Willamette Writers page.
Financial amounts to be determined will be in the range of $100-$250.
1. Original, unpublished writing sample of less than 1000 words, typed, double-spaced. The sample should be titled, but should not include any information about the author. Writing published in school publications is eligible.
2. A cover letter with contact information that includes the title of the writing sample, and a paragraph that includes information about the student’s goals as a writer.
3. Letter of recommendation from an instructor in the current academic year.
