Writing Seminars Announces Scholarships with PEN USA, Cave Canem
Bennington Writing Seminars is pleased to announce two one-time creative writing MFA scholarships, in partnership with the PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellowship, and Cave Canem Poets, an organization committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets.
Effective during the September 2017 admissions period for the January 2018 residency, Bennington will grant the scholarship amount of $10,000 across four terms ($2,500 a term), to an Emerging Voices Fellow, and to a qualified poet. If a candidate is not selected for January, the scholarship will be available for an Emerging Voices Fellow for the March 1, 2018 admissions period, with a June 2018 start date. These scholarships are made possible thanks to the January 2017 graduating class.
