There are plenty of information about scholarship awards in technical fields. Lots of companies are very interested in getting skilled engineers, outstanding scientists and brilliant researchers into their headquarters. In the eyes of the society the literature scholarship awards may look dim on this background. Literature doesn’t make any practical stuff so why will someone fund it if not of sheer generosity?

It is not so. There are lots of awards dedicated solely to the literature. Indeed they are founded mostly by individuals, not corporations - famous writers, journalists and families of the deceased authors are willing to help the young aspiring writers to achieve the same success.

It isn’t easy to choose the award that is the most suitable for your work. But some questions to ask yourself may help you with the choice. Do you want to get a sum of money to live while you are finishing your masterpiece or do you prefer your university to be paid for up to your graduation? Do you want to study literature or write it? Would you prefer a higher chance or a higher amount of money? Are you a student of high school or have a degree? Are you willing to relocate to study somewhere else?
