A limited number of scholarships are available each term. To apply, please submit a letter of need to us via Submittable including the following information:
- Which class you wish to take and why

If you're concerned about your class filling up, please apply as soon as possible. A place will be held in your requested course once your application is received. You will be notified of scholarship decisions by June 18, 2013.
Scholarships are determined on a quarterly basis for the current term's classes. We grant only one scholarship per student each quarter, and no more than two scholarships per student each year. Deferments are not permitted. For more information about the scholarship fund, please email us or call (206) 322-7030.
If you're unsure how to formulate your scholarship letter, please refer to the following sample letter:
Dear Scholarship Selection Committee:
My name is (full name) and I am applying for a Hugo House scholarship. I am . . .
Use this paragraph to tell the reader about yourself and why you are applying for this particular scholarship. Use simple and direct statements. Tell them about yourself, your family, your background and anything else that may be of interest about your circumstances.
I am in need of tuition assistance because…
Use this paragraph to tell us, in as much detail as possible, why you are applying for a scholarship. We understand this could be a sensitive topic, but this is the most important part of your application. Please also tell us how much, if any, you can afford to pay of the total tuition for your class.
I’m interested in the class ___________ because …
Tell us a little about your writing background. If you don’t have a writing background (and that’s OK!), tell us what drives you to want to write. Please also list the types, if any, of creative writing classes you have taken. Most of all, tell us why you want to take the specific class you requested.
I hope to use this class to . . .
Use this paragraph to tell the reader what uses you’ll make of the class. This can something like, “I’d like to learn to write a memoir so that I can pass my story on to my family,” or “I’m interested in being workshopped so that I may submit my writing for publication,” or something as simple as, “I just want to learn to write better.”
