I am a short story writer, are there specific scholarships for me.

Short Story Contests

Short story writing tends to be an overlooked specialty. For those students who have embraced the art of the short story, there are scholarship contests all around. Some scholarships come directly from schools such as UC Berkley.

Many short story scholarships come from obvious sources such as the “Let's Get Creative Scholarship” program and the “Writer's Nook Contests”. However, sometimes writing scholarships can be found in unexpected places—The Responsible Gambling Council offers an annual short story scholarship!

I believe this comment is absolutely true. There are numerous opportunities out there for young and talented minds. The only problem is that they are overlooked and we are missing out on a life time chance

I love this tip because I write secretly and at the moment I am not in college, but I plan on going back within the next few months, but I am unemployed so I can't pay for school myself. So I believe my best way of finding help is my writing. Please let me know more info about writing scholarships. I write poetry, short stories, and novels.

What do you get out of the scholarship. Without a clear reward it hardly seems worth my time.
