Student Scholarship Recipients
The National Willa Cather Center is delighted to announce our 2021 recipients of the Norma Ross Walter, Ántonia, Antonette Willa Skupa Turner, and the Leslie A. and Helen R. Wilson scholarships. Each young scholar recorded a video reading of their winning essays to be shared virtually at our 66th annual Spring Conference, and they attended a live Q&A session with conference participants.
