Vickie Ferguson Memorial Scholarship
(for writers and illustrators)
DEADLINE: JUNE 22, 2013
The Vickie Ferguson Memorial Scholarship honors the memory of Vickie Ferguson, long-time member of RMC-SCBWI, who passed away in May 2005. Vickie was dedicated to her writing. This scholarship seeks to support those writers and illustrators who are committed to their craft and are actively writing and/or illustrating. The Fund will offer scholarships for one author and one illustrator to the RMC-SCBWI Fall Conference (both days), plus the cost of either a manuscript critique or portfolio review.
