SummerWrite FAQ


We provide scholarships:

We have taken steps to increase access to our scholarship program with an anonymous online application portal that eliminates the “gatekeeper.” If your family earners have been furloughed, laid off, or separated due to COVID-19 and the economic downturn, please don't hesitate to apply for a scholarship based on the level of your current household income.

      • Need-based Youth Scholarship and Mardy Mohammed Youth Scholarship funds are available to all qualifying families without restriction.
      • Claire Allen Memorial Scholarship Fund: Need-based scholarships are available for girls, ages 11 -15, living in Livingston County. To apply, please go to

Claire Allen was a dedicated SummerWrite student in 2016 and 2017. An avid reader and writer whose original work was published in Stone Soup, New Moon, and elsewhere, she was an award-winning student and athlete and an accomplished musician and actor. Claire was bright and incredibly kind, and was passionate about social justice. Her memory lives on through this fund.
