John Fowles Literary Awards for Graduating MFA Students
Each Spring the department recognizes the best work in fiction, poetry and nonfiction by graduating students.
Graduate students are selected for certain scholarships at the discretion of the Department faculty. If you are selected, you will be notified of your selection via letter and/or Panther email; the notification will include information on the scholarship's name, amount of funds to be dispersed and date by which you need to confirm your acceptance of the scholarship.
The Graduate Assistantships for MFA students function like work-study in that a student earns an hourly wage for 5-10 hours per week. Each graduate assistant is assigned to a particular faculty member to assist with a course, a reading series, a website, research tasks or other projects. Opportunities vary from semester to semester, and students gain hands-on experience to help them consider a variety of career options.
