ELF Scholarship Supports Talented Student Writers

An award rooted in excellence, The Sandra Brown Excellence in Literary Fiction Scholarship (ELF) was established in 2008 to provide a full tuition scholarship to a talented TCU student writer who demonstrates both academic achievement and significant potential as a fiction writer. The scholarship was created in honor of TCU alumna and best-selling novelist Sandra Brown.

TCU’s 2022 ELF Scholarship recipient, Lily Margaret Greenway, is a rising junior who is an English and religion double major, as well as a member of the John V. Roach Honors College. From Little Rock, Arkansas, Greenway is focused on becoming a professional author and hopes to be published before she graduates from the university.

The ELF Scholarship is one of TCU’s most prestigious academic awards, and this past year a large number of applicant portfolios was submitted, making judging quite difficult, said Dan Williams, who helps with the applications process. Ultimately, both the internal and external judges gave Greenway the top ranking. Williams, who is also the TCU Honors Professor of Humanities and director of the TCU Press, said, “A talented and dedicated writer, Lily Margaret is exactly the kind of student Sandra and Michael Brown had in mind when they endowed the scholarship.”
