Fellowship Award Eligibility
The Conference offers a limited number of fellowships on a competitive basis. Fellowships cover tuition, room, and board. Fellows are responsible for their own travel costs. Fellowship applicants in poetry should have a full-length collection published by an academic or commercial publisher. Self-published titles are not considered eligible. Chapbooks are eligible for scholarship applications, but not for fellowships. We will accept fellowship applicants with books in press, but only if the book will be published by the time of the Conference.
If you would like to be considered for a scholarship or contributor position should you not receive a fellowship, you must submit a separate scholarship application or contributor application in addition to the fellowship application. Writers can only attend the Conference once on a poetry fellowship.
