$500 scholarships are available to the high school gold winners for each category in the Crowder Quill literary/art contest. This one-time scholarship is for the top high school winner in each category: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, digital art, 2D art, and 3D art.
The scholarships are funded by individual departments (art and journalism) in order to nurture the talent presented during the Quill contest. Those winning students must enroll in one of the courses designated on the certificate to activate the scholarship. After the first semester, the department may elect to renew the scholarship if student has shown satisfactory progress in the discipline and maintained a minimum gpa of 2.5. Students should inquire about renewing the scholarship.
The award does not expire, but the award recipient should contact the journalism department (LatoniaBailey@crowder.edu) for writing and photography scholarships or the art department (CaseySmith@Crowder.edu) for those categories prior to the semester of enrollment to complete a scholarship form for the Admissions/Financial Aid offices.
The deadline for the contest/scholarship is Feb. 1 each year.
