Sentient Squid Scholarship

The Sentient Squid Scholarship was established in 2016 to provide writers with limited financial means the opportunity to take Writing the Other classes. The scholarship fund is made up of donations from individuals and groups who have overwhelmed us with their generosity. We are extremely grateful to our donors and their commitment to opening up this learning opportunity to more writers.
