I do not know – as I am in the U.K
but I DO know hat scholarships for poetry are hard to obtain
unless you `Know The Ropes`, so to speak..
Here in England, we do have a massive tome called,
`The Directory of Grant-Making Trusts`, which provides
categorized and stratified accurate information as to whom and where to apply
for scholarships from Trusts (Cadbuy`s, Rowntrees , The Buttle Trust and @ another /)
to acquire scholarships for many Educational / Arts pursuits.
It`s unlikely that there will not be similar Books of data for U,S, citizens
so you need try that path , perhaps?
By working hard upon letters which are then photocopied and sent to all Trusts
which offer the Grants needed, and providing proof of requisite qualifying factors
it is very possible to find the Scholarship money needed.
It usually can take @ months of constant application/s – yet
with effort as you might have or three trusts willing to provide total finances
to selected colleges/ Uni`s over several years.
So don`t hesitate to put in the initial elbow-grease
and be self-resourcing re how you approach the matter
for the result can be most worthwhile.
The bursary – interviews are good, relaxed yet sensible, and personal
and annual or -yearly interviews of progress are par for this
and sometimes upgrade-bursaries are added for travel, etc to minimal extra costs.
They are usually worldly but kindly and understanding empathetic inteviewers
so, if it is your heart`s desire..get thee to a Web-Search, a library, our stationary,
a photocopier (your printer) and – –
