Split This Rock is committed to diversity of all kinds. If a scholarship would help make your attendance possible, please apply.
Scholarships will be given based on economic need, with a particular emphasis on youth and seniors, poets and activists of color, poets and activists with disabilities, and poets and activists from other marginalized groups.
A scholarship to the festival covers the registration fee only. Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to help with transportation or housing. We will post "where to stay" information regularly on our website, with as many low-cost options as possible.
To apply, please write us a brief letter or email (no more than 250 words) telling us about your background, work, organizational affiliations (if any), etc. Describe your circumstances and why a scholarship would be helpful. We don’t need to see poems or a résumé. Please include full contact information: your full name, email, phone number, and mailing address.
Send the letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to:
Split This Rock Poetry Festival
1112 16th Street, NW, Suite 600
Washington, DC 20036
For inquiries and questions only, contact email@example.com.
Applications for scholarships will be approved on a rolling basis, with an absolute postmark deadline of February 22, 2012. Please apply early; scholarships will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
