Financial Aid

The program admits only ten to twelve students each year, which allows us to fully fund all accepted M.F.A. candidates through Teaching Assistantships in composition and creative writing, fellowships and an editorial position at The Seattle Review, our nationally-distributed literary journal. In addition, qualified applicants will be considered for the Pollock/GO-MAP Fellowship, a two-year fellowship for students of color and students from other underrepresented groups.
