Goddard College has announced a $10,000 scholarship available to members of the three PEN North American centres for their MFA in Creative Writing.

“The Goddard/PEN North American Scholarship, now in its third year, is the result of a partnership between Goddard’s low-residency MFA in Creative Writing Program and PEN AmericaPEN Canada, and PEN Mexico, which together comprise the North American branches of PEN International, the world’s preeminent literary organization.

PEN members, who range from prominent published authors to student members, share the same commitment to literary activism and excellence that defines the Goddard MFA in Creative Writing Program. Members of any of these PEN Centers are eligible for Goddard’s new scholarship.

Applicants for the Goddard MFA in Creative Writing entering in either the spring or the fall semester in 2019 are eligible to apply for this scholarship. The application deadlines for the spring semester are Nov. 15 (VT residencies) and Dec. 1 (WA residencies). The application deadline for the fall semester for 2019 scholarship candidates in either program location is March 1, 2019.”    – Goddard College
