Financial Aid for Graduate Writing

Financial Aid

All full-time Graduate Writing students receive partial academic fellowships for each of their two years of study, awarded on the basis of exceptional accomplishment and promise. Also, students qualify for paid practicums in teaching or publishing, requiring six training hours per week, over the course of two fifteen-week semesters. These positions offer a stipend available for both years of study.

While part-time students are not eligible for Otis fellowships, they may qualify for federal financial aid to assist their tuition cost. Part-time students complete their degree in three years, with the benefit of an additional year to develop their thesis manuscripts.

Please contact the Admissions Office for further information about curriculum and costs.
