The Fine Print:
The Poetry for the People Scholarship is only for poets who legitimately cannot afford class tuition. My classes are kept affordable so that more people can take them! You can register for the class as a non-scholarship candidate here. Next class starts on March 11. Don’t wait to register, this class fills early.
Please note that this is a full scholarship, not a giveaway. The scholarship is offered by Sage Cohen. Only one scholarship is available per P4P class. The recipient commits to participating fully in the class and delivering all six assignments on time. Please do not apply if you cannot make the commitment to participate in the class.
The scholarship is not transferable if you fail to complete the class. The scholarship is also not transferable in the case of illness, family emergencies, a move, etc.
No special additional professional time or coaching is offered with the scholarship. It’s up to the scholarship recipient to make the most of the class, like everyone else in the group.
What is written in your application is private, and your personal information will never be shared or sold. No one but Sage Cohen will view your application.
