Fellowships

The Creative Writing Fellowship Fund was created to honor William Tremblay and Mary Crow, two distinguished faculty members of the M.F.A. program in CSU’s English Department. Each year, two merit-based fellowships, titled the Tremblay-Crow Fellowships, will be awarded to incoming M.F.A. students whose writing shows exceptional promise, or to continuing students who are contributing members of the M.F.A. program and whose writing has shown exceptional growth. One fellowship will be awarded to a fiction writer and one fellowship will be awarded to a poet. Fellowship recipients shall not have graduate teaching assistantships in the English Department. Students do not need to complete an application. Recipients will be selected by the Creative Writing Committee.
