Hello! It's great to hear that you're passionate about poetry. There are indeed several scholarships available for students with a strong interest and talent in poetry. Here are a few options you might want to consider:

1. Scholastic Art & Writing Awards: This prestigious competition offers awards in various categories, including poetry. High school students from the US, Canada, and American schools abroad are eligible to enter. Winners can receive cash awards, as well as recognition on a national level.

2. The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award: This is an international poetry competition for young poets aged 11-17, organized by The Poetry Society in the UK. Though it's a UK-based initiative, it's open to young poets worldwide. Winners receive a range of prizes, including publication, opportunities to work with professional poets, and invitations to poetry events.

3. The National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS) offers several poetry-related scholarships and contests for high school and college students. These awards vary in amount and eligibility requirements, so be sure to visit their website for information about specific competitions.

4. The Live Poets Society of New Jersey also runs an annual, nationwide poetry contest called the National High School Poetry Contest. The contest is open to high school students in the US and offers monetary awards and publication opportunities for winners.

5. Additionally, various colleges and universities may offer poetry-related scholarships or awards for enrolled students. For example, some institutions have annual poetry competitions or host poetry slams where students can compete for prizes. Make sure to check with the institutions you're interested in attending for any such opportunities.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should give you a good starting point to explore poetry-related scholarships. Don't forget to also search for local and regional competitions or awards, as these may have fewer applicants and better odds of winning. Good luck in your search, and keep nurturing your passion for poetry!
