Alicea Sperstad was a beloved sister and a budding writer who passed away too soon.

Alicea faced many barriers to fulfilling her writing potential, including being a young mother from a rural town with a history of trauma. A history of gender bias in the publishing industry and a lack of mentors in the field add to the obstacles that women face when pursuing careers as writers.

This scholarship aims to support women who are interested in becoming writers so they have the financial resources necessary to achieve their dreams.

Any female high school senior, two or four-year undergraduate, or graduate student who is interested in becoming a writer may apply for this scholarship.
