All full-time Graduate Writing students receive 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.
Part-time students are eligible for reduced tuition. While not eligible for Otis fellowships, they qualify for federal financial aid to cover their tuition cost. Part-time students complete their degree in three years instead of two, with the benefit of two additional workshops and an additional year to develop their thesis manuscripts.
Finally, both full-time and part-time students in their last semester of study are invited to apply for the First Book Fellowship, a $10,000 grant that enables the recipient, following completion of the degree, to focus on revising his or her thesis manuscript for publication.
