English Department Undergraduate Scholarships

Application deadline for 2014: March 17, 2014

Each year the Department has a handful of endowed scholarships to award to majors. The scholarships are, with one exception, open to majors in English-Literature, English-Creative Writing, Professional Writing, and Technical and Scientific Communication. English-Journalism and Journalism majors are not eligible for these scholarships; the several endowed scholarships for those majors will be handled through the Journalism Program.

Please print out the application form, and follow the instructions in it.

Along with the application form, the documents listed below must be submitted to the Department of English, 356 Bachelor Hall.

*Students apply in the spring of 2014 for scholarships that count towards the 2014-15 academic year. Therefore, to be eligible for these scholarships, you must have junior or senior status by the beginning of the coming fall semester (Fall 2014). This is what is meant by a “rising junior” or a “rising senior.” If you are currently a graduating senior this academic year (i.e. you plan to graduate in December, May or August of the 2013-14 academic year), you are not eligible to apply for these scholarships.
