In alignment with our mission, Go On Girl! has supported up and coming authors since 2000 in the form of scholarships and awards. Authors of the African diaspora offer a rich perspective on life and are often missing in the mainstream promotions of literature. So, it is our honor to encourage responsible writing of this beautiful literature. The Unpublished Writer's Award and The Aspiring Literary Scholar Award is also our way of strengthening the world community’s recognition of literature written by people of the African diaspora.
