The GPCW at Western offers several scholarships for full-time MA or MFA students each year, depending on available funding.
Scholarships range from $1,000/yr. to $5,000/yr. and continue for the length of the degree for full-time students who remain in good academic standing. Students must maintain at least a B+ average each term to remain eligible for the scholarship.
All admitted students (MA or MFA) who plan to enroll full-time are eligible to apply. Students may apply for the scholarship simultaneously with application to the program, but scholarship applications will only be considered after a student has been admitted. Should you withdraw from the program or fall below full-time enrollment, your scholarship will be forfeited.
