All admitted students who are eligible for financial aid receive scholarships of up to $3,000 each.*
All disbursements are made through Student Accounts (balances due may be subtracted from the award amount) and are distributed in equal installments at the beginning of Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. Recipients must remain in good standing and continue in the Kidd Workshops through subsequent terms to retain their scholarships. Departure from the Kidd Workshops during the year, for any reason, terminates funding.
Scholarship recipients are notified by email.
*Financial awards are subject to available funding. Eligibility is determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarship pursuant to University guidelines, not those of the Creative Writing Program. Post-bac undergraduates are not eligible for program scholarships.
The Line of Inquiry Award
Prizes in each genre are awarded to students for the best Line of Inquiry (LOI) essay. The Kidd Director reviews work nominated by Kidd Tutors and makes the final selections.
