The Creative Writing Program and the Department of English of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are pleased to announce the Thomas Wolfe Scholarship, which offers full four-year financial support to one incoming freshman per year.
The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship's level of support is comparable to that of the University's well-known Morehead Scholarships. Whereas the Morehead Scholarship places broad emphasis on a candidate's exemplary leadership, community service, academic excellence, and physical vigor, the Thomas Wolfe Scholarship seeks to identify and reward students with exceptionally focused literary ability and promise.

Scholarships are intended for our future leaders across a wide spectrum of fields of study. This award is available to high school seniors and all students attending a post secondary educational facility.

Essay Topic: "The #BlackLivesMatter movement was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman. Zimmerman was acquitted. Many have criticized the #BlackLivesMatter movement for focusing on specific injustices done to African Americans, stating instead there should be an #AllLivesMatter movement.
If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive, would he argue that blacks should focus on the #AllLivesMatter movement to focus more globally and generally on all lives, or would he support the #BlackLivesMatter movement to focus more on black lives.
Please discuss why or why not."
