Scholarships

Juniper Funding

Thanks in part to the donations from our generous sponsors, Juniper is able to award several scholarships to workshop applicants from our general applicant pool. (Please note that scholarship funding is not available for the Independent Writing Residency option).

Congrats to our scholarship recipients from the 2019 Institute! 

For 2022 we plan to offer at least 5 full-ride scholarships that will cover tuition as well as room & board on UMass campus.

To support a full creative life for all, Juniper offers these scholarships to individuals who have experienced socioeconomic disadvantages or discrimination, and/or who are citizens of underrepresented or marginalized groups. It is our hope that this practice helps to cultivate a just, inclusive, equitable literary community.

To be considered for funding, mark the checkbox “I would like to be considered for a scholarship” on the Submittable App.

Scholarship applications are due January 15, 2022. 

General applications are due February 15, 2022
