Student Scholarship Application

A limited number of $30 scholarships are available to students who would otherwise be unable to pay the registration fee. Student scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis while funds last, based on need and alignment of interests with symposium themes. A brief application form is available here. NOTE: Scholarship applicants may enter and save registration information, and then AFTER receiving notification of the scholarship award, should return to complete registration and submit fee payment. Please contact Lisa Warren at with any questions.

Separate registration for (free) pre-symposium event

There is no additional registration fee to attend the pre-symposium event Wednesday, April 4, from 6 to 8 pm, in Wilson Library on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. However, you’ll need to sign up separately (here) due to space limitations. The event will include a reception and program highlighting how the 1918 influenza pandemic affected both the UNC-Chapel Hill community and the life and work of Thomas Wolfe, UNC alumnus and author of the classic American novel, Look Homeward, Angel.
