The 2018 Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship is now open for submissions:
This scholarship is open to Palestinian-American youth and Palestinian youth residing in the US, ages 18-25. Three prizes will be awarded, and these top three will win scholarship prizes of $500, $250 and $250. More winners will be published in an online anthology.
The deadline is August 15th, 2018, and the application form is available online.
According to organizers:
Few scholarships and grants exist for youth of Arab heritage in the US, which is why we want to fill in this gap and provide support for our own community. We want to reward our youth who demonstrate excellent writing capabilities, creativity, a strong commitment to literature and arts, and engagement in their community. Without this support, we lose the opportunity to create change within our communities and others.
