Go On Girl Book Club Scholarships
The Go On Girl! Book Club is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit organization that supports authors of the Black African Diaspora. They are inviting you to write your way to college money.
Our mission is to encourage the literary pursuits of people of African descent. In this vain, since 1993, we have bestowed our coveted "Author of the Year" award and our "New Author of the Year" award on such talents as Octavia Butler, Gloria Naylor, Valerie Wilson Wesley and Connie Briscoe, just to name a few.
Since 2000, we have been fortunate and honored to also sponsor two additional awards, both monetary, to support up and coming authors - The Unpublished Writer's Award and The Aspiring Writers Educational Scholarship.
Award Amount : $500
Deadline: Usually in March
