Dear listserve members, just a reminder of this annual scholarship
opportunity for the Western Literature Association (and two other
conferences) offered by the National Willa Cather Center.

*National Willa Cather Center Scholarship for Student Research*

The National Willa Cather Center is supporting emerging Western Literature
Association scholars who increase our understanding and appreciation of the
life and work of Willa Cather. As a part of this effort, we have created a
$400 annual scholarship to support a student presenting their
Cather-associated work at the Western Literature Association Conference and
who meets the criteria below.


   1. Recipient must be a graduate student or advanced undergraduate
   2. Recipient must be on the program to present a paper related to Willa
   Cather at the Western Literature Association. All scholarly and critical
   approaches are welcome, as long as Cather’s work is a central focus.
   3. Recipient must have travel and registration expenses not already
   covered by other external sources.

*How to Apply*

Applicants should send a message to NWCC Education Specialist Rachel Olsen
at [log in to unmask] with the following attachments:

1.      One-page cover letter which clarifies that the applicant meets all
of the above criteria

2.      Copy of accepted proposal for scholarly presentation

Applicants who seek a scholarship should submit their application no later
than *August 18, 2019*.

*WCF Emerging Scholar Scholarships*

The Cather Foundation is awarding three annual $400 scholarships. We prefer
to award at least one scholarship to a student presenting at the annual
conference of the American Literature Association and another to a student
presenting at the annual conference of the Western Literature Association.
A third scholarship is undesignated to a specific conference, but
preference is given to students presenting their research at conferences
that are *not* Cather-specific (such as the International Cather Seminar,
for which there are other available scholarships).
