Goddard/PEN North American Centers Scholarship Fund

Goddard/PEN North American Centers Scholarship Fund


The Goddard/PEN North American Centers Scholarship is a new $10,000 scholarship that will provide writers from anywhere in North America with a pathway to earning an MFA in Creative Writing.

The scholarship is the result of a partnership between Goddard College and the North American branches of PEN International: PEN America, PEN Canada, and PEN México,.

PEN International is the world’s leading international literary and human rights 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. Please click here for application criteria and deadlines.

The award is made possible by a generous gift from faculty and friends of Goddard College. Your support provides funding for future Goddard/PEN North American Center Scholarship awards at Goddard College.
