Small Scholarship Program for Students in Missouri

In response to the NAACP Travel Advisory in effect for the state of Missouri, in response to the Coalition’s decision to cancel its appearance at the 4C18 SIG, and subsidized in part by a generous gift from an anonymous donor, the Coalition would like to announce that there are funds available for a small scholarship program this year. Specifically, these funds are available to support graduate students currently enrolled in a graduate program in the state of Missouri with demonstrated financial need to travel to other conferences in 2018.  Conferences may include (but are not limited to) RSA, WPA, Computers and Writing, Watson, Conference on Community Writing, or Cultural Rhetorics. The Coalition is pleased to offer three (3) travel awards at $300 apiece. 

Nominations for scholarships are due by March 15, 2018 to Lisa Mastrangelo (lmastrangelo919@gmail.com). Graduate students are encouraged to nominate themselves. All nominations should include the following items:

1) A brief cover letter and cv

2) A brief statement of eligibility/support from a current professor or adviser.
