Our students come to the program with degrees from fields as diverse as biology, English, economics and history, but most have had some exposure to a writing workshop. Students range in age from 22 to 75 and come from all over the world.

All applicants are automatically considered for the Program's merit-based scholarships by way of their application materials.  No additional materials are required.
