UCLA's Dashew Center for International Students and Scholars (DCISS) is offering a great scholarship opportunity for UCLA international undergraduate and graduate students to gain recognition for their mastery of the English language. An UCLA tradition for over 40 years, the award seeks to reward non-native English speakers for their ability to showcase their creative writing skills. Students are asked to submit original pieces, ranging from screenplays, novels, short stories, poetry and more. There will be three cash prizes awarded to the top three authors, with a grand prize of $2,500, so all international students interested in creative writing are encouraged to apply! Applications are due on Friday, March 17th! 


*Please note that AB540 students, UCLA Extension students, certificate program students, and visiting graduate researchers are not eligible to participate in the contest as per the endowment's guidelines.
