Funding and Financial Aid
All students are fully funded. Each student admitted receives a full tuition scholarship in addition to an annual stipend of $17,500. Some of these scholarships are configured to include teaching duties. Students have opportunities to teach in The Writing Program (a separate academic unit, specializing in composition) and in the Living Writers course, featuring prominent guest writers from the Raymond Carver Reading Series. Occasionally other classes are available to teach (e.g. ENG 151, Interpretation of Poetry).
As well, there may sometimes be an opportunity to intern with BOA Publishing.
We admit students who come from all walks of life and believe they should not be straddled with student-loan payments when they graduate. Talent, not wealth, is the sole prerequisite for admission.
