As we previously announced last summer, THS Scholarship program will continue for the 2016-2017 academic year, and with some exciting upgrades!
Our two pre-existing scholarships will be increasing to $1,000/each (previously $750/each), and there will be a new third scholarship honoring Virginia Heinlein reserved to young women majoring in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) field. Any applicant eligible for the Virginia Heinlein award will be entered into it automatically, and if she does not win that one, her application will be considered for the other two pre-existing awards (which include “Science Fiction as Literature” as a qualifying field of study as well).
We’ll finalize the details and application process with an announcement in early March, but the tentative schedule is:
Early March — Application process opens
May 15 — Application process closes
July 7 (Robert Heinlein’s birthday) — Winners announced
