New Poets of Native Nations Women’s Scholarship

Congratulations to Ruby Hansen Murray, the recipient of a new scholarship opportunity to attend a workshop at the Minnesota Northwoods Writers Conference.

This scholarship is funded through a generous donation of royalties from sales of the anthology New Poets of Native Nations edited by Heid E. Erdrich and published by Graywolf Press.

Any person who is an enrolled member or citizen or descendant of an enrolled member of a Native Nation and who identifies as female is eligible to apply for this scholarship. While this scholarship aims to lower financial barriers for those who want to engage in this unique arts learning opportunity, it will be awarded based on literary merit. This scholarship is open to application to any of the workshops: poetry, hybrid poetry/prose, fiction, or creative nonfiction.

This scholarship includes the full conference fee, on-campus housing, a book allowance, and a stipend toward travel and food. One scholarship will be awarded.

To Apply: include in scholarship application a one-page (double-spaced) statement of eligibility and what you hope to gain from the conference. There is no application fee.

The scholarship application deadline was February 15, 2019.
