The Betty Crumrine Scholarship is awarded to a single parent who is committed to writing and who could not otherwise attend the workshop. The Crumrine Scholarship was created by friends of Betty Crumrine, who lived and wrote in Yellow Springs and participated in the Antioch Writers' Workshop from 1986 until 1990.
First place winners of Antioch Writers' Workshop Scholarships receive a full waiver of registration and tuition fees. Second place winners receive a 50% waiver of registration and tuition fees. The scholarships do not cover travel, lodging, or food.
To apply, please send your submission (poetry, nonfiction, fiction, or drama) and a one-page letter explaining your writing experience and plans and need for financial aid. For specific details on how to submit and format, please see our scholarship page. Submissions that do not follow our submitting and formatting guidelines will be disqualified.
