Due to its commitment to providing support for the best candidates for the Creative Writing in Spanish MFA, New York University partially covers 12 of the 32 unit credits, in the form of 8 credits during the first year and 4 credits during the second year to all admitted applicants.
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) awards three full scholarships to three students who have proved an excellent academic performance. The awarded students must be qualified to teach Spanish. These scholarships cover tuition, health insurance, and fees. No application is needed for this fellowship. All applicants to the Creative Writing in Spanish Program are considered and recipients are notified along with their acceptance letter.
Merit-based partial scholarships for second year students
Two scholarships that include 12 credits (on top of the 4 points covered by the GSAS Fellowship), health insurance, and fees.
The MA Scholars are responsible for the preparation of the program’s events calendar, as well as assisting with the publication process of Temporales magazine and performing various administrative tasks.
The candidates must be recommended by a professor of the MFA who can attest to their academic performance and must also show proof of their ability to perform and complete the required tasks. The finalists will be selected by the Financial Aid committee.
All interested students must submit a recommendation letter and a letter of request to the graduate advisor.
Sylvia Molloy Scholarships
Three stipends of $5000 ($2,500 per semester) are awarded to second year students. The recipients will be selected by the Financial Aid committee.
First year students may be financially aided by foundations of their own countries, such as Conicyt from Chile or Fonca-Conacyt from Mexico. If a student is awarded one of these scholarships, the tuition points that would have been covered by NYU will be redistributed amongst those second year students that have not received any of the full scholarships and that have a good academic standing.
The applicants will be selected on merit by the Financial Aid committee based on the number of available points. The order of the waiting list will be made public the last day of the semester. The granting of these points is dependent upon the respective calendars of the institutions that award the scholarships, whose decisions are known in the months of July and August respectively.
