This scholarship is designed to encourage the Latin@ voice in poetry and the literary arts, both at The Frost Place and in the broader literary community. The winner will receive a full fellowship to attend the Conference on Poetry at The Frost Place, July 9 - 15, 2017, including tuition, room, board, and travel.
The Latin@ Scholarship at The Frost Place will be selected by a small panel of readers who are committed to furthering the Latin@ voice in poetry. The winning recipient will be selected solely based on the merit of his/her work, and responses to the application questions. The candidate’s selection will not be determined based on gender, immigration status, or any other biases.
The ideal applicant would self-identify as Latin@, would have a strong commitment to the Latin@ community, and be a minimum of 21 years of age.
Applications consist of a completed form, the contact information of two references, and a sample of 3 - 5 poems.
