    All applicants are welcome to apply. The Kurt Brown Fellowship especially seeks to support individuals from cultural, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds who otherwise might not be adequately represented in the program.

    Applicants who want to be considered for the Kurt Brown Fellowship should submit a general application form, along with a brief (1-2 pages, typed, double-spaced) essay explaining of how you meet the fellowship's criteria and why the fellowship would meaningfully support your pursuit of a degree in Solstice MFA in Creative Writing Program. There is no separate application form. The fellowship is awarded based on the applicant's writing sample and his/her 1-2 page essay.
