Fully Funded MFAs in Creative Writing

Update in progress. We aim to finish this list by November 8, 2020.

Below is a list of creative writing MFA programs that fully fund ALL of their students. Programs that do not meet our definition of full funding but in practice fund the majority of their students are on the Mostly Funded MFAs in Creative Writing List. If your program is missing or you notice any inaccuracies, please contact us.

We have occasionally been contacted by people offered unfunded admission to programs that market themselves to applicants as fully funded and were listed on this website. When people bring this complaint to us, we place the program on our partially funded list for two years with a note explaining that the funding information on that program’s website is incorrect. If, at the end of those two years, nobody else has been offered an unfunded position, then the program will move back to this list, but the year of the last unfunded offer will still be noted. Not fully disclosing your program’s financial status to applicants is unethical.

First-year graduate assistants with fewer than 18 hours of prior graduate coursework in English will be assigned to work in the Writing Center, serve under the supervision of a faculty member as small section discussion leaders for 200-level literature lecture courses, or be assigned other duties as appropriate. In the second year and beyond, graduate assistants routinely teach two courses per semester.

The Graduate School and the College of Arts & Sciences also offer significant assistance with research and travel costs. The Student Government Association and the department’s own English Graduate Organization are additional sources of research and travel funding, along with the Capstone International Center, which allocates funding for international research and travel.

The Graduate School will provide single-coverage health insurance for each assistantship.

All students receive a tuition waiver and a Teaching Assistantship with a stipend of $10,450 per year. TAs teach one introductory course in their genre per semester.

If a GA is classified as a non-resident of Idaho for tuition purposes, the non-resident tuition is waived by the university.

Travel funds are available through the MFA program, though the amount available depends on the year; every student is guaranteed to receive some funding at least once during their time at Boise State.

Three-year program. Teaching assistantships provide full tuition coverage. MFA students on assistantship are also assigned to teach one undergraduate composition or creative writing course per quarter (three courses per academic year). MFA students receive academic credit as well as a nine-month salary for teaching. For 2020-2021, students will earn an estimated $21,911.49 for the academic year. Out-of-state students admitted into the program are required to file for California residency by the end of their first year in order to continue receiving financial support. Assistantships come with 100% fee remission for student services fees and $100 remission of the campus services fees, which came to approximately $850 in the 2020-2021 school year. As a state-funded institution, UC Irvine has very limited financial support available for international students. Unfortunately, full financial support is rarely possible. The Graduate Division also offers Chancellor’s Club Fellowships, Eugene-Cota Robles Fellowships, Dean’s Dissertation Fellowships, Dean’s Recruitment Fellowships, Graduate Opportunity Fellowships, President’s Dissertation Year Fellowships, and Public Impact Fellowships.

The Graduate Division also offers supplemental funding in the form of Diversity Recruitment Fellowships, Brython Davis Fellowships, Gordon Hein Scholarships, Inclusive Excellence Ambassador Fellowships, La Verne Noyes Fellowships, Miguel Velez Fellowships, Nevin Graduate Endowment Fellowships, Otto W. Shaler Scholarships, Phi Beta Kappa International Scholarships, Public Impact Fellowships, and Tom Angell Fellowships.

Three-year program. All of our MFA students qualify for a position as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, which typically entails teaching two sections of English Composition per semester (Fall and Spring only — a limited number of courses are available during the summer). Assistantships come with tuition remission and a $9,000/year stipend, though some are available at $12,000/year. Fees are still paid by the student at in-state rates.

Students can also work at the University Center for Excellence in Writing in place of a course section.

Partial stipends are available for students working on Coastlines. The departmental Swann scholarship, the Graduate and Professional Students Association, and Student Travel offer funds for research- and writing-related travel (GPSA’s funds can also be used for non-research travel).

We believe that preferential funding can create an atmosphere of toxic competition among MFAs. All MFA@FLA students receive a full tuition waiver and a fellowship and teaching assistantship package that in 2020 will pay $24,000 per year for each of the three years of the program. Students pay fees of about $750 per semester. During their three years in the program, students teach courses in the English department and in the University Writing Program. For the first year, the appointment for incoming students will consist of mentored teaching (courses team-taught by two incoming graduate students and a senior graduate student) in the University Writing Program. During the second and third years, students will teach one course per semester. In most cases, MFAs teach a combination of composition and professional writing and undergraduate creative writing workshops. Other teaching opportunities may arise, including undergraduate literature and film courses in areas in which you have expertise and TAships for lecture courses taught by our faculty.

Travel funds are available from the Graduate School’s Office of Research, Center for European Studies, and Graduate Student Council.
