The third annual Lou Yuhasz Memorial Scholarship is open for submissions until March 31, 2020.
Each year, we award one $100 scholarship, and invite the recipient to read their work at the Fall Literary Festival, September 24-26. The winner and runner-up will receive free registration to the Festival.
If you will be a NEOMFA student in fall of 2020 and would like to compete for the prize, please send a cover letter and 10-page writing portfolio (name on cover letter only) to LitYoungstown@gmail.com. The deadline is March 31.
Lou was an enthusiastic writer and Lit Youngstown volunteer and participant, and we miss him. To honor his spirit, we created this scholarship, and are grateful for contributions to the scholarship fund, which will allow us to offer this award well into the future.
2019 scholarship recipient: Steven Caumo, selected by NEOMFA Professor Craig Paulenich and alumnus James Winter
2018 scholarship recipient: D.T. McCrea, selected by NEOMFA Professor Robert Miltner and alumna Amy Sparks.
