University of San Francisco Announces Lawrence Ferlinghetti Fellowship
Here's news of a new fellowship for USF students, in honor of Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
From their website:
This fellowship honors Lawrence Ferlinghetti who published and supported the work of writers who were outsiders―outside traditional academia or traditional social conventions. In his long career, Ferlinghetti has been a staunch proponent of First Amendment rights, including free speech. This fellowship, which provides full tuition funding, is awarded bi-annually to an applicant in poetry whose work embodies a concern for social justice and freedom of expression, interpreted in the broadest possible way. Poets applying this year should follow the instructions below to be considered for the fellowship.
