English teachers, principals, and guidance counselors are invited to nominate up to three outstanding students to apply each year for admission to the Juniper Institute for Young Writers. Nominating students for the Institute is a fantastic way to acknowledge and support young writers.


Students can be nominated either for admission to the program, or for one of our tuition scholarships. While nominations are not a guarantee of acceptance, nominees’ applications, for both regular admission and scholarships, will be given special consideration. All applications are accepted on a rolling basis. However, we encourage all students to apply early as workshops fill quickly.

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 below.

To nominate students, please submit the required information here. In order to allow your students to submit scholarship materials by the deadline, please submit your nominations by February 13, 2015.

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.

—Creative Writing Teacher, California

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.

—Parent of a Young Writer
