This scholarship was established to recognize the achievement of an undergraduate English major studying creative writing with a preference for students whose strength is in writing poetry. The scholarship was established in memory of Alex McGuiggan, an English major at the University of Colorado Boulder.
This scholarship benefits students with a creative writing emphasis who exemplify promise of talent in communicating through written language. The scholarship was generously established by Donna Jorgenson Farrell in memory of her son, Curtis Michael Gimeno, who enjoyed writing.
Created by English alumnus Dick Shahan, this scholarship is open to all CU-Boulder undergraduate students. Students can use their imaginations and demonstrate their writing skills in different genres while celebrating Boulder.
