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.

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).
