Reminder about Shimer’s new transfer scholarship

This is a reminder that the deadline for applying to Shimer College’s new two-year, full-tuition scholarship for transfer students is next Friday, November 15. In addition to sumbitting the regular application materials, students will need to write a brief essay reflecting on a piece by Adrianne Rich. Over the subsequent two weeks, all applicants will do an interview with a Shimer faculty member where they will discuss the Rich essay, among other things. The recipient will be announced on December 6.

If you know of any students who may be interested in applying to Shimer, please let them know about this opportunity.
