The Emily Hendrickson Scholarship Fund

“A Feather to Fly With”

RFW’s “A Feather to Fly With” scholarship fund honors Emily Hendrickson, a writer generous with her time in mentoring others, who created the extensive Regency Reference Book and published more than 50 Regency romances, many of them award-winning. She passed in 2019, leaving a lasting legacy of encouragement and excellence.

The scholarship fund is supported by donations, so please consider contributing. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
