We are thrilled to announce that CooknScribble.com has received a grant that subsidizes six scholarships for our seminars. By matching this grant, we are able to offer fifty percent scholarships in five of the areas that are dear to us.
- IACP Scholars are established professionals seeking to try new forms, or to move forward in their writing. This scholarship aims to give working people some support to try something new and the tools they need to test-drive an unrealized dream, be it a book, a blog, a documentary, a newsletter or a focused press release.
- In recognition of the work that the Edible network does in showcasing new voices and expanding the nation’s awareness of local food, Edible Scholars are writers dedicated to giving voice to community, micro-climates and the quiet food heroes of everyday life. Preference is given to those whose work has appeared in one of the Edible publications or websites.
- Ethnic Foodways Scholars are writers whose research focuses on cooking of specific ethnic or cultural populations. Preference is given to those with a strong academic background or passionate amateurs with a proven publishing record.
- Food Justice Scholars are writers dedicated to food access, food policy, appropriate agriculture, hunger relief or other food-centric, humanitarian relief efforts who need powerful communication skills to spread their message in conventional and emerging media.
- New Voice Scholars are emerging writers who are passionate about food and need the instruction, editing and mentoring it takes to bring their work to the next level.
In addition to these scholarships, Cook ‘n Scribble has a limited amount of support of up to 20 percent of the tuition cost that we reserve for people doing interesting work who could use a little break.
Our internship program is a barter deal: free tuition in exchange for specific research, administrative and tech tasks. In general, these interns come highly recommended from graduate programs, however the spots are open to all who have some skills, some talent and a lot of appetite.
There are currently no scholarships available until the 2012-2013 academic year. Stay tuned for announcements on due dates and applications.
