The Pay It Forward Scholarship will be awarded to a pre-published author taking their first course with the Highlights Foundation. This scholarship supports full tuition for an in-person workshop of the author’s choice or covers the cost of a 4-night personal retreat. Financial assistance for travel will be offered if available.
This scholarship was established by Liz Rice, a former elementary school teacher and longtime friend of the Highlights Foundation. She has attended many workshops at the Boyds Mills campus and enjoys staying in a cabin for her own personal retreats ever since the UnWorkshops were created by Kent Brown. Her story in Ladybug Magazine, “Aranya Tries Again”, was re-released as an ebook by Cricket Media.
Liz has created the Pay It Forward Scholarship as a means of showing her gratitude to the Highlights Foundation for its support of her over the years. The staff and faculty are the reason she keeps returning to campus and is always looking for additional in-person and online classes. Liz wants to help other writers to have a Highlights Foundation experience.
