Bryn Lunde was a quiet, talented, and creative Wallowa County youth who loved the mountains, art, music, and writing. Family and friends of Bryn’s established this scholarship fund for young writers after his death in 2004. Scholarships are available to any person under 35 years of age, and high school and college students are especially encouraged to apply.
Summer Fishtrap Scholarship applications are accepted from January 1 through February 3 at 5 PM (PST). Late applications will be considered if funding allows. Applicants will be notified of decision on or before February 24, 2014.
Who is eligible:
Bryn Lunde Scholarships are available to any person under 35 years of age who wishes to attend a Fishtrap event. High school and college students are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants will automatically be considered for a Frank Conley Scholarship as well.
The size of each scholarship is determined on an event by event basis, and may or may not cover the entire cost of the Fishtrap event. This means that scholarship recipients may need to pay part of the cost to attend Fishtrap.
How to apply:
Send a brief letter or email, not to exceed two pages or 800 words, to Fishtrap. Describe yourself, the relevance of the Fishtrap event to your life, writing, and interests, and explain your financial need. Provide personal and contact information, including your birthdate. Mail to Fishtrap at P.O. Box 38, Enterprise, OR 97828; or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scholarship applications will typically be reviewed by at least two Fishtrap staff or board members. All applicants will be notified regardless of outcome.
