It can be difficult for writers, before they become established, to write and to earn a living outside writing at the same time. To help fill this need the MMF aims to each year award three Morland Writing Scholarships for fiction and one Morland Scholarship for non-fiction. The Scholarships are open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa or both of whose parents were born in Africa.
Application deadline: October 31, 2015
