This scholarship was established in 2004 by the family of Eric D. Meyer as a gift in memory of their son. Eric was an NKU student at the time of his death and possessed a strong passion for poetry. The university received extensive contributions in Eric's memory, and friends sponsored numerous fundraising events in support of the scholarship.
Note: This scholarship requires the submission of 10 pages of original poetry to the Department of English in addition to the application filed with the Office of Financial Aid.
This award was created and endowed in memory of Dr. Danny L. Miller, who began teaching at NKU in 1981 and served as Department Chair from 2000 until his death in 2008. While Danny Miller had many passions in life -- including Appalachian literature, his family, his friends, and genealogy -- one of his proudest accomplishments was creating the NKU English Department graduate program. Danny Miller ardently believed in the power of humanities education to change lives.
