Nita Buckley Scholarship




Nita Buckley Scholarship Fund

Nita Buckley was SCBWI-Oklahoma’s oldest member. At age 97, she rarely missed a monthly meeting or conference. The weekend she died, in October of 2012, she was emailing to find a ride to a meeting in Tulsa.

In memory of our friend, who felt tremendous joy in learning and improving her writing, we are re-establishing the Nita Buckley Scholarship Fund.

·      The money value of each scholarship will be determined by funds collected. The goal is to send a member to the SCBWI-Los Angeles Conference.

·      Donations may be made by check to: (write SCHOLARSHIP FUND on the memo line).
