LIKHAAN: The UP Institute of Creative Writing through the generous support of the Likhaan Foundation is offering the Likhaan Foundation Creative Writing Scholarship to deserving students this academic year, 2018-19.
The scholarship is open to all students of MA Creative Writing or Malikhaing Pagsulat who are in good standing and on the thesis stage of their studies. The scholarship is meant to help students with the completion of their thesis over the prescribed one year-period (two academic semesters).
The Likhaan Foundation Scholarship will grant to the successful applicants Php 20,000 during the thesis proposal semester and PhP30,000 during the final thesis defense semester.
The qualified applicants must submit a referral letter from one of their professors, verifying their abilities in the field, and, most of all, their determination to finish their degree. Each applicant will be evaluated on the basis of their literary merit and financial need. The scholar must submit a report of completion at the end of every semester.
If they fail to finish the requirements during the prescribed semester, they must write a letter of explanation to the donor (the Likhaan Foundation) and the Director of the UP Institute of Creative Writing, Dr. Roland B. Tolentino. The request to renew/extend the scholarship shall be deliberated upon by both parties.
The applicant cannot re-apply for the scholarship once the UP ICW and the Likhaan Foundation has found his/her situation not on a par with the qualities of a scholar. The Likhaan Foundation can revoke the support once the student fails to meet the standards set by the scholarship policy.
Interested students should submit their applications to the Institute of Creative Writing, Room 3200, Pavilion III, Palma Hall, UP Diliman. Look for Ronnie or Glo.
