Pan-European MFA Scholarships

The Pan-European MFA in Creative Writing annually offers two scholarships to students who begin study during a summer residency. Scholarships provide $1,500.00 USD per year toward tuition for up to two years of study during the distance mentorships ($750 USD toward tuition for each fall and spring distance-mentorship semester over two years, up to a maximum of $3,000 USD per student).

These merit-based awards are granted on the basis of application writing portfolios and personal essays that demonstrate a promise of distinction in the program. In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants must have completed their application file by the April deadline for start at a following summer residency (April 1st). No additional scholarship application form is necessary.

In order to maintain eligibility for the scholarship, recipients must enroll in the MFA program beginning at the following summer residency (not delaying matriculation in the program) and must maintain continual progress toward the degree as defined by the MFA program handbook.
