The Terran Award, given by George R.R. Martin, will be given annually to one applicant from a nation where English is not the primary language. The award will cover tuition and fees, but not travel or meals. If you wish to apply for the award, please indicate this in an appendix to your application. Applications, submissions, and sample fiction must be in English.
At present, a small amount of scholarship money is available to offset tuition costs. If you are interested in this scholarship, please describe your need and situation in an appendix to your application.
We will do our best to cooperate, but you will have to arrange this with your university.
