Each year, Majors in the Creative Writing program benefit from scholarships specifically endowed for them. Students don’t need to apply for these awards; all current and incoming BFA students are automatically considered.

We would like to thank the generous individuals who have endowed the following awards for Majors in the Creative Writing program:

  • The Cherie Smith Prize
  • The Teresa Tenisci Memorial Prize
  • The George McWhirter Prize in Poetry
  • The Douglas and Beverly Bankson Scholarship in Creative Writing
  • The Ethel Lillian Mulligan Memorial Scholarship in Creative Writing

As well, our Majors are considered in turn with other Fine Arts Majors for the following award:

  • The Faculty Women’s Club Ida Green Scholarship
