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
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
Thanks again for giving so many of our students the chance to work on their writing in this wonderful venue. They always return impassioned, and with a heightened sense of themselves as poets and writers.

English teachers, principals, and guidance counselors are invited to nominate up to three outstanding students (up to two in poetry; one in fiction) 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.
To nominate students, please email the following information to: email@example.com

Scholarship applications must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2013. However, we encourage all students to apply early as workshops fill quickly.
