Reynolds Scholars are UNK students who are selected to receive a Paul and Clarice Reynolds Scholarship. This year, six students were selected. To be considered for a Paul and Clarice Reynolds scholarship, a student must be an English major or minor with an interest in creative writing. Awards are based on the literary quality of a 10-page packet of creative writing submitted by the students. The scholarship is distributed in early fall to assist with their education in creative writing.
