Financial Aid

At this time, because the program is brand new, we are not able to offer scholarships. We are working on this issue and hope to offer scholarships at some point in the near future. Please check back with us on this question. Of course, eligible students may apply for a Federal Stafford loan.

Cross-genre study

During the residencies we require that students attend a certain number of classes in their chosen genres. When that quota is met, students are free to attend any class of their choice. There will be opportunity to attend workshops, plenary sessions, readings, and lectures dealing with each type of genre.
