Financial Aid

The Creative Writing Program funds all incoming students with a Graduate Teaching Fellowship (GTF) appointment. These positions are not teaching assistantships (TAs) in which students teach discussion sections of a course taught by regular faculty; students are the “instructors of record” for all of these courses. Previous teaching experience is not required for the GTF appointments; training is provided by the Program. However, applicants will need to demonstrate their probable success as a first-time teacher through their application materials and letters of recommendation.
