Several dozen outstanding Humanities Division students, faculty members, and professionals from Mississippi's universities, colleges, and community colleges are honored each year by being named William Winter Scholars at the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration (NLCC).

Each Winter Scholar is chosen by his or her educational institution as the Humanities Division's most outstanding student, faculty member, or professional. This award allows winners to attend most of the NLCC free of charge. The annual award also carries with it prestige and public acknowledgment of how highly the person is regarded by his or her institution. Winners are honored publicly at the opening and closing sessions, in printed materials, and in publicity. Click here to view the Resolution by Co-Lin in Memory of Governor William F. Winter
