Michigan Hemingway Society

Since 1990, focusing on the Michigan influence in Ernest Hemingway's work,
especially the Nick Adams Stories.
The society holds an annual Hemingway Weekend in Petoskey, MI
each Fall which features speakers, readings, exhibits, and tours
of northern Michigan sites where the Nobel Prize-winning author
spent his boyhood summers.

The Michigan Hemingway Society exists to encourage the study of Ernest Hemingway's life and work, especially regarding his relationship to Michigan. What better way to do this than to foster an interest in Hemingway in a new generation by helping to pay expenses to attend an MHS conference. Long-time Society member Bill Coté suggested that a student scholarship be created and designed to bring young students to read, understand, and appreciate the novels and short stories of Ernest Hemingway. The Board of Directors is delighted to announce the creation of the Bill and Donna Coté Scholarship Fund.

The very first Bill and Donna Coté Scholarship was awarded in 2016 to Lily Rosenberg, an eleventh grade student at West Bloomfield High School in West Bloomfield, Michigan.

This scholarship is open to High School, College and University students who show an interest in learning about the influence Michigan had on the life and works of Ernest Hemingway. Those interested should submit a short essay to the society, with their instructors recommendation, no later than two months prior to the upcoming conference (no later than August 6th, 2017). Mail the essay to The Michigan Hemingway Society, PO Box 922, Petoskey, MI 49770, or submit it to info@michiganhemingwaysociety.org.
