Creative Writing Scholarship

The English Department at Lebanon Valley College invites prospective students majoring in Creative Writing to submit a portfolio for review for a Creative Writing Fellows Scholarship. Two scholarships will be awarded and based solely on the quality of the work.

“I have incredible respect for the entire LVC English Department. The literature and ideas that I was exposed to and wrote about have made me a more empathetic and action-oriented person. My goal for my Fulbright grant is to use literature as a tool to expose my students to various backgrounds and experiences.”
