Administrators Nisi Shawl and K. Tempest Bradford announced that Writing the Other‘s financial aid program has been renamed the “Vonda N. McIntyre Sentient Squid Scholarship.” The scholarship began in 2016 when McIntyre donated anonymously to the Writing the Other online classes, and was originally named the Sentient Squid Scholarship in honor of a character from her Starfarer series of books.
“To date, the Sentient Squid Scholarship has provided over $15,000 in financial aid to a wide range of deserving applicants” and currently provides full and partial scholarships for Writing the Other students. For more information, see the Writing the Other website.
While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
