Do You Qualify For the Writer Mama Scholarship? Deadline is Midnight, Monday, April 26th

by @thewritermama on April 19, 2010

VALUE: $250.00!

Are you a mom, who would love to take the Writing and Publishing the Short Stuff Class that starts May 12th, but you would not otherwise be able to afford it?

Then you qualify for The Writer Mama Scholarship.

The application deadline for the next available scholarship for Writing & Publishing The Short Stuff Class begins today! I am accepting applications through Monday, April 26th.

One full scholarship is granted each quarter. Please read the guidelines below completely and double-check your application before submitting. The recipient will be announced on Wednesday, April 28th in this blog.

Please feel free to spread the word about the scholarship, even if you do not intend to apply. This is a full scholarship. The recipient commits to participating fully in the class and deliver all six assignments on time. Please do not apply if you cannot make the commitment to participate in the class, which involves reading the weekly workbook, completing your assignments, and reviewing your classmates work. No additional time or special coaching is offered with the scholarship. It’s up to the scholarship recipient to make the most of the class.

Please note that this is a scholarship, not a giveaway. This scholarship is only for moms. The scholarship is offered by class instructor, Christina Katz (that’s me).

If you have already paid for the class, you do not qualify for the scholarship. If you have already taken the class, you also do not qualify. Otherwise one scholarship is available per WPSS class.

The scholarship is not transferable if you fail to complete the class. The scholarship is also not transferable in the case of illness, family emergencies, a move, etc.

What is written in your application is private and your personal information will never be shared or sold. The only way to qualify is to apply each time. No one else will view your application but Christina Katz (that’s me).

The application questions are below. Copy and paste them into a Microsoft Word document (to take the class you must be able to create and read Microsoft Word documents, no exceptions). Attach your Word doc to your application. Please answer each question concisely and completely.

Send your application to: “katz christina at comcast dot net”–this the only email address for the scholarship. If you do not receive the scholarship, save your application for future scholarships and re-apply. Always add in your most current publication credits, since they are important.

The scholarship recipient will be chosen based on the following criteria: demonstrated effort, need, and enthusiasm. The most important consideration is demonstrated past effort, so please don’t skimp on details of your past writing efforts. Applications accepted from U.S. residents only at this time.

Here’s the application:

Write a short paragraph in response to the following questions:

  1. Please write one paragraph about why you want to take the class, Writing and Publishing the Short Stuff.
  2. Please list, in paragraph form by publication name and date only, any publication credits you’ve accumulated thus far. Briefly list any other experience you think is relevant, also in paragraph form.

Please Note: The Writer Mama Scholarship is only for moms who legitimately cannot afford class tuition for whatever reason. So if you work at home, earn money, receive money, or your spouse or partner earns enough money for you to afford the class, please expect to pay full price. My classes are kept affordable so that moms can take them!

To register for the class as a non-scholarship candidate, please visit the “Register” page at ChristinaKatz.com.

I’m pleased to be able to offer one free class per semester to one deserving mama. Good luck!
