This year, we will be able to offer two undergraduate Marcella DeBourg awards at $1000 each. These are not scholarships. If a student has financial aid, the funds will be applied directly to their financial aid account.
The deadline for the DeBourg is Monday, March 24. You must be currently enrolled English undergraduates. The application is a cover letter concerning their interest/project (plus name, address, phone, email, student ID number) and a writing sample of 15-20 pages of prose or 6-8 pages poetry. Applicants should be interested in giving "creative expression to women's lives." This award is open to students of any gender. The prose can be creative or academic. The criteria is the quality of writing. Submissions should be brought to the Creative Writing Program Office, 222 Lind Hall, by the deadline date.
