  • Announcement

This scholarship will be offered annually in honor of the life and work of Monique Wittig, who was a professor at the University of Arizona from 1990 to 2003.

The Monique Wittig Writer's Scholarship will foster innovation in literary forms and the connection between politics and language. It will allow University of Arizona graduate and undergraduate students to allocate more time to their writing. This endowed scholarship is open to writers in all fields including literature, film, theater, poetry, essays, and new/mixed media.

Applicants must indicate how their work addresses the political and artistic parameters of the Scholarship, and provide a writing sample and a writing plan that demonstrate how their work will benefit from the Scholarship. The evaluation committee is composed of colleagues of Monique Wittig, former recipients, and the initiator of the scholarship, Sande Zeig, Wittig's partner. The application is available every January. The deadline for submission is March 1. The award ceremony is held in late April.

2005 Scholarship Recipient: Padma Viswanathan
