The Jeanne Córdova Words Scholarship

Lambda Literary

The Jeanne Córdova Words Scholarship, in memory of the beloved activist and author who passed away in January, will be given annually in conjunction with Lambda’s Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices. The Scholarship will be awarded to a lesbian of color or lesbian-identified queer or trans woman of color, working on text with lesbian content in any of the workshop categories excluding poetry. The scholarship includes the Retreat tuition, room and board fees plus transportation costs, up to a total of $2,500. Each year’s Scholarship awardee will be selected by the Córdova Words Scholarship Committee, from a list of writers accepted to the Retreat who meet the scholarship criteria.
