Richard Peck Scholarship Open for Applications

Prior to his passing, beloved author, Richard Peck, gave a great gift to the de Grummond Collection and to the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival to assist in offsetting the costs of festival attendance.

We are pleased to announce that we have four scholarships at $1,200 per recipient for the 2023 face-to-face festival. The scholarship will allow awardees to pay for one registration, accommodations, and other expenses incurred at the festival (books?).

Dates of Festival: April 12-14, 2023

Location: The University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, MS 39406

Deadline for applications: February 6, 2023

If you have questions, contact Ellen Ruffin or Karlie Herndon.
