Financial Aid

Qualified M.F.A. candidates are funded through both teaching assistantships and fellowships. Typically, students who have been awarded teaching assistantships lead discussions and workshops for literature and creative writing courses during their first three semesters. During their last semester, when they are preparing their Master’s Report, all students currently receive a fellowship that will cover tuition and living expenses for the semester. Students graduate with a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.
