The Ohio State University at Lima

Arbuckle Creative Writing Scholarship: $400

The Arbuckle scholarship is awarded annually to one exceptional Ohio State Lima student. It may be used only on the Lima campus. All students who write poetry, fiction, and/or creative nonfiction are eligible to apply. Graduating seniors are also eligible.

The scholarship honors the memory of Professor Nan Arbuckle and her contributions to the campus. Dr. Arbuckle, in addition to being a Medievalist and a composition specialist, was an accomplished poet, and one of her ambitions was to foster a love of creative writing among her students.

Students must complete this online application on or before February 25th of each year.

Please attach a Word doc/docx or pdf file containing approximately ten pages of creative work. This may consist of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or some combination. Poetry should be single-spaced, prose double-spaced. Students are not asked to write anything new for the application but to simply load their very best ten pages. Please do not include a name anywhere on the attached file since entries will be read anonymously.
