The Arnold Greenfield Scholarships program now provides four full, need-based scholarships to community members to cover tuition for a course offered through the Poetry Center's Classes & Workshops program. Four full scholarships (ranging in value from $60 for a single-session class to $180 for a 5-week workshop or seminar, according to recipient interest) are awarded each term (fall, spring, and summer). The Poetry Center is grateful for this generous financial support for poets and writers in our Southern Arizona community.

Eligibility: Any community member with financial need is eligible to apply with the exception of Poetry Center employees and interns. In the application, you need only attest to financial need: i.e., the inability to pay a course's tuition without financial strain.

Scholarships are awarded by lottery and may be applied to any course a recipient wishes. The scholarship must be used during the season for which it is awarded. Deadline for scholarships for Spring 2023: Wednesday, December 7th at 11:59PM.
