The Masters in Written Communications department at National Louis University is thrilled to again offer the scholarship for a graduate student published in the department's Mosaics magazine.
The 2017 award-winning student will attend a weeklong session of Paris Cafe Writing in Paris, France.
Patricia Tennison, an NLU writing instructor and founder of Paris Cafe Writing, has donated the first $1,350. This is the fee for a week of Paris Cafe Writing. It includes the group writing sessions, a private writing review, seven lunches or dinners, three breakfasts, a walking tour, a jazz concert and a few surprises.
But the award-winning student will need more help than that.
Donations through the university to the Paris Cafe Writing Scholarship fund are tax deductible. Here are some ideas of what your donation would buy:
- $1,500: roundtrip flight, Chicago to Paris
- $200: one night in a hotel and a nice dinner; or a first-time U.S. passport and a pair of good walking shoes
- $100: a two-day museum pass, a scarf, and a cafe au lait every day; or two taxis, to/from Charles de Gaulle airport; or a carry-on luggage; or a once-in-a-lifetime French dinner
- $25: entrance to the Louvre and a simple lunch; or a bunch of Metro tickets and a T-shirt from rue Rivoli; or really good chocolates; or a book from Shakespeare & Company
By Dec. 31, 2016, we need to announce the amount of the scholarship. Our goal for the 2017 Paris Cafe Writing Scholarship is $4,000.
