THE APPLICATION SUBMISSION TIME HAS NOW PASSED.
Wild Mountain Memoir Retreat is excited to announce a call for applications for the Cheryl Strayed/VIDA Scholarship. This scholarship, funded by an anonymous donor, will provide the full registration fee for the Wild Mountain Memoir Retreat, March 15-17, 2013 to one female writer of literary promise and demonstrated financial need.
The scholarship recipient will be chosen by VIDA, a literary organization that “seeks to explore critical and cultural perceptions of writing by women through meaningful conversation and the exchange of ideas among existing and emerging literary communities.” Since 2010, VIDA has been conducting “The Count,” which tracks the rate of publication of women writers compared to that of their male counterparts. Learn more about The Count here.
To apply for the scholarship, please read the criterion on the Cheryl Strayed/VIDA Scholarship page and send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Wild Mountain Memoir Retreat Scholarship” in the subject line by midnight in one PDF document no later than midnight on February 14, 2013. The recipient will be announced by the end of February on the Wild Mountain Memoir Retreat webpage.
