We are pleased to announce the availability of ten President’s Access Grants for qualified participants of AUSB’s Summer Writing Institute (SWI). These partial scholarships will provide a 20% reduction of the $975 fee, allowing grant recipients to attend for only $780. Applicants must apply for a grant online and will be chosen from among all entries.
“It’s important for Antioch to make this program as accessible as possible to promising writers,” says Marcia Meier, director of SWI, “so I am especially delighted that President Nancy Leffert has made these partial scholarships available to those in need.”
To apply for a President’s Access Grant for SWI, submit a 200-word essay via email explaining why you need this grant and how it would benefit you, with “SWI Grant” as the Subject line. Include your full name, email address and phone number. Hard copies of essays will not be accepted.
The President’s Access Grant application deadline is Thursday, May 30, 2013. Recipients will be notified by Wednesday, June 5. The application deadline for the Summer Writing Institute is Saturday, June 15.
