#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Today I’ll be choosing finalists for my 2006 Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women, and believe me, it won’t be easy. I wish I could award a scholarship to everyone who applied, but of course I can’t, so it’s push up the sleeves and decide time.

If you do not win, the 2007 program will be beginning soon. Watch the website for details.

On a personal note, my good friend Larry Webster is having surgery tomorrow and will need all your prayers and good thoughts. My stepmother, Edith Lael, is still hospitalized but back in Grand Coulee, where she has so many devoted friends and family members. She is in good spirits and that, of course, is an indicator that she will heal rapidly. Also, Dad won’t have to drive 150 miles a day over bad roads to visit her.

I have just finished the second of two anthology stories, written since Christmas! After the scholarship judging, I will immediately begin “The McKettrick Way”, the 2007 Special Edition scheduled for December.

We’re busy around here, but thriving. Color me grateful.

    Good Day, I am interested in applying for the 2017 Scholarship.
    I am 54 year old graduating in 2018 in Studio Art. I plan to attend a graduate school for the fall of 2018 for Art Therapy. The school has a wonderful curriculum and I am excited to attend. Much needed funds and prayers. Thank you, have a blessed day. Daisy

    I noticed other people commenting on here about scholarships. I was wondering if you still offer scholarships?
    If so, what is the criteria for them?

    Also wondering about scholarships. I see that nothing is posted about a scholarship since 2006? Please respond either way. Thanks!

    I am wondering if you are offering scholarships in 2020/2021? I am a 32 year old female returning to school after 12 years. I had to quit school to take care of my mom after a terrible accident. Please let me know, I am very interested

    My name is Meghann, I’m almost 39 and i want to go back to school. I write, I paint, I make jewelry, etc,… There’s really not much I can’t do. I have realized as of late that it’s high time I put my talents to use, there’s just one small problem, I can’t afford it! I’m a stay at home mom that’s going through a divorce and I’m living completely on child support and an EBT card! Pathetic? yes, I know… I also know I don’t care how pathetic I look to others; I do however care very much what my daughters think of me. I was an Honor student for all twelve years i attended school but never realized that actually means something. You see, I was always told, get married, Meghann, you’d make a great wife! So that’s what i did and that’s all I’ve ever done. Not anymore. I’m tired of having to depend on some man for my survival. I’m a smart, talented, beautiful, articulate, hilarious woman and I deserve to be who I want and that’s a belly dancing art teacher! Thank you for reading this.
