Money for writers under 31 in Scotland
The Dewar Arts Awards, set up in memory of the late Donald Dewar, awards bursaries in recognition of young talent across all art forms in Scotland. To date, fewer bursaries have been awarded for writing than other arts - so now's your chance! Any young person living and working or studying in Scotland can be nominated, up to the age of 30, if their financial circumstances make it difficult to progress fully in their chosen field. If you know of a talented young person who you think would benefit from a bursary to further their development as a writer, you can nominate them through the Dewar Awards web site. You can find out more about eligibility and how to apply by visiting the links shown several words ago. Alas and alack, I am waaaaay too old to qualify for this. Such is life.
