In addition to the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop Partnered Institution Scholarships, the MFA in Writing & Publishing program at the Vermont College of Fine Arts announces the following Diversity Scholarships with a February 1 priority scholarship deadline for Fall 2019 enrollment.
Indigenous Peoples Scholarships
Tuition scholarships ranging from $1,000-$5,000 may be awarded to applicants who belong to an indigenous group anywhere in the world. With regard to the location of our Vermont-based campus, indigenous peoples living in the Northeastern United States will be given preference and are especially encouraged to apply.
Tuition scholarships ranging from $1,000-$5,000 may be awarded to writers who live outside of the US and who are not US citizens in order to support VCFA’s global mission.
New American Scholarships
Tuition scholarships ranging from $1,000-$5,000 may be awarded to writers permanently residing in the United States who were born outside of the country. We believe immigrant and migrant writers are vital and necessary within the US literary community.
Tuition scholarships of $3,000 may be awarded to US Veterans to attend our MFA in Writing & Publishing program in recognition of their sacrifice and contributions.
Writers of Color & LGBTQ+ Scholarships
Tuition scholarships ranging from $1,000-$5,000 may be awarded to writers of color and/or writers from LGBTQ+ communities in order to create opportunities for traditionally underrepresented writers.
