Scholarship awardees

Thanks to generous underwriting from our sponsors, every year the Juniper Summer Writing Institute is able to award general and named scholarships to outstanding writers from our applicant pool. To learn more about applying for a Juniper scholarship, please see our scholarships page.

The “Juniper Summer Writing Institute” named scholarship is made possible through our individual donors. Juniper also collaborates with a number of Institutional Partners who support scholarships within their writing communities. Congratulations to all our scholarship recipients and thank you to our partners and sponsors for making such an important investment in the Juniper community.

For more information about how you can support a scholarship or become an Institutional Partner, please contact us.
