Announcing recipients of the Sarah Browning Travel Scholarship
Split This Rock is delighted to announce travel scholarship awards to Carmin Wong, leilani portillo, Leticia Hernández-Linares, and torrin a. greathouse. These scholarships, offered for the first time this year in honor of founding director Sarah Browning and with the generous support of her family, support travel and lodging for poets to attend Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2020.
Thank you to everyone who applied! The twenty-two applications we received affirm how needed this funding is. Since January 2019, we've increased scholarship opportunities across all programs--from youth slams to the poetry contest to the Festival. Split This Rock's staff and board are committed to growing the Sarah Browning Travel Scholarship fund as part of this work.
Split This Rock looks forward to welcoming the recipients and all attendees to Split This Rock Poetry Festival (March 26-28, 2020)! For more information about the Sarah Browning Travel Scholarship, please visit Split This Rock's website.
