The application window for the 2018-2019 Nana Lampton Scholarship for Emerging Writers is currently closed.

The Nana Lampton Scholarship covers $5,000 of the annual tuition ($5,500) for the Carnegie Center’s Author Academy. The Scholarship is awarded to one applicant each year based on financial need in combination with writing goals, a writing sample, letter of recommendation, and a completed application.

This scholarship is offered in coordination with Nana Lampton–a writer, painter, arts advocate, and lifelong Kentuckian. Her books include The Moon with the Sun in Her Eye and Wash the Dust from My Eyes.
