One cannot choose what talents our children will be born with, but one can definitely help give the talent the right direction. Providing quality mentorship and training is the key, and no one can deny that candid feedback and timely hand-holding can do wonders to a child’s skills. And you make this possible for your child by having him or her apply for Literature Studio Summer Scholarship.
Is my child eligible?
If your child meets the following criteria, he or she is eligible:
1) The child is 11-17 years old
2) The child has demonstrated talent for writing
How does one apply?
To apply for the summer scholarship, send in the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th May 2014:

2) A covering note stating why you think your child should receive this scholarship
What happens next?
Our jury will go through the applications received and will identify one candidate to receive the Literature Studio Summer Scholarship. And that one candidate could be your child.
And, of course, what does it mean for my child if he or she receives the scholarship?
