Katie O'Brien Memorial Scholarships Deadline SoonCharity
Several years ago we told you about a young Harry Potter fan by the name of Katie O'Brien who lost her battle against leukemia. Her longtime friends at Fiction Alley set up a memorial scholarship fund in her honor and applications for the 2007-2008 Katie O'Brien Scholarships for Writing, Art and Community Service are due May 31.
As a devoted Harry Potter fan fiction writer, her friends and family choose to remember Katie by offering this scholarship as a means "to help provide other writers, as well as artists and those who give back to the community, with some help in making their dreams come true." Three $500 scholarships are awarded, thanks in part to the generous contributions of fans and through the purchase of wristbands. For more information about this scholarship, click here.
