To celebrate Carvd N Stone’s 5 year anniversary, we are announcing a new CNS Scholarship. The Annual CNS Loren Martin Hintz Travel Writing Scholarship will award a $1,000 scholarship to a Milwaukee writer.
Requirements: Reside in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; be between the ages of 17-29 years old and submit one 800-word essay that fits the 2022 theme: “Your favorite traveling experience and why?”
Applications open February 1, 2022 at 9 a.m. CST and close on February 28, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. CST. There are no requirements for how the money is spent, though Hintz would encourage the winner to use it in one’s heart’s pursuits.
We’ve created a scholarship in Hint’z name thanks to his son Steve Hintz. Hintz was a self-employed writer after leaving The Milwaukee Sentinel as an editor/writer in 1975. He had more than 100 books published, along with hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles and won a number of awards for his work. He had a graduate degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
He was the chair of the Freelance Council of the Society of American Travel Writers and was president of SATW in 2001-2002. He was also a member of the Society of Professional Journalists. Hintz loved to connect with people and encourage them to try new things to expand their worlds. It’s in the spirit of his loving nature this scholarship is being offered. He was the father of three children and the stepfather of three more, which he poured a considerable amount of love into. He was beloved for his independent spirit, his pursuit of his heart’s passions and the simple consideration and attention that he gave to his fellow humans.
