Applications are now being accepted for the 2022-2023 Kevin T. Early Memorial Scholarship, a poetry prize open to first-year undergraduates in all majors. This scholarship is made possible by an endowment from William and Donna Early in memory of their son, a poet, Kevin T. Early. It awards $2000 to a student with freshman standing at UIUC for the 2022-2023 school year. The deadline for application is January 31, 2023.
For consideration, students must submit 5 poems via email to me at: Jdudek4@illinois.edu. The complete submission should not exceed 5 pages (so 1 poem to a page). Submissions should be attached to the email as .docx (Word) files.
The subject line of the email should read: “EARLY PRIZE SUBMISSION: Last name.” The body of the email should include the student’s name, address, phone number, e-mail, UIN, and the titles of the poems. The name should not appear on the entry file itself. Complete guidelines are included in the attached document.
If you have any questions, please email John Dudek at firstname.lastname@example.org
