I can't thank you enough. He is having such a great experience, real personal growth. You folks truly understand and know how to encourage young artists.

Our student attended the Institute last year and it changed his life, without a doubt. You run the best summer program for young writers that I am aware of in the country.

English teachers, principals, and guidance counselors are invited to nominate up to three outstanding students to apply for admission to the Juniper Institute for Young Writers or, in the case of need, to apply for admission and a scholarship. Nominating students for the Institute is a fantastic way to acknowledge and support young writers. Nominations are not a guarantee of acceptance, but nominees’ applications, for both regular admission and scholarships, will be given special consideration.
Once we receive your nomination, we will send you a nomination letter to give to your student(s) along with program and application information. We will not contact your students directly until they have chosen to apply to the Institute. We recognize and thank teachers who nominate students by listing their schools on this site’s participating schools page.
General applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The Institute also awards several full and partial scholarships on the basis of need and merit. Scholarship applications must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2014. However, we encourage all students to apply early as workshops fill quickly.
To nominate students, please visit this link to submit the required information. In order to allow your students to submit scholarship materials by the deadline, please submit your nominations by February 14, 2014.
