The program offers partial funding. All students receive graduate fellowships that range from half-tuition remission to full-tuition remission with generous stipends. All students are also offered undergraduate teaching positions during their second year of study.
The program hosts a reading series, a student-run Emerging Writers Series, and a master-class series, and includes opportunities to meet with agents and editors.
