RISE Scholarship

As an organization, Northern Colorado Writers is committed to supporting and encouraging writers at all stages in their writing journeys. One way we do this is by creating opportunities to publish. In 2019, we produced our first biennial mixed-genre anthology, RISE: An Anthology of Change. The royalties from each NCW anthology will support programs and services for our members and our writing community. Funds will also be used to support education and networking for writers who would like to attend our annual conference. 

Each year, we will offer a limited number of scholarships to our conference. Winners will be chosen by the NCW leadership team based on the substance of the submitted essay and it's alignment with our organizational mission.         

Open to all writers. 

We will open to submissions for the 2022 conference in October 2021. 

    To Apply: 

    • Write a short essay on how attending the NCW conference will change you. (1000 word maximum).
    • Include your contact information (name, email address, phone number) on your submission.
    • Click here to complete the form and upload your essay. (OPENS OCTOBER 2021)


      Submissions for the 2021 Conference are now CLOSED.
