The Frances Anne Smith King Babbit Scholarship

The H. T. English Scholarship
The Harriet Rice Harned Scholarship
The Elise H. Moore English Award
The Marie Charlotte Stark Scholarship
The Martha Pope Trotter Scholarship

Apply Online

We now have an online application form for all of our scholarships (new links will be provided below for 2021-2022). Because the Neill James Memorial Scholarship asks for a creative writing sample, there is a separate application form than the one for other Departmental Scholarships. You can complete both applications:

Departmental Scholarships in Languages, Literature, and Philosophy — current undergraduate and transfer students
Neill James Memorial Scholarships in Creative Writing — current undergraduate, transfer, and incoming freshman students
