Program Support and Opportunities
While currently the program is unable to offer support to students, one of our top priorities is to find ways, through student employment, assistantships and stipends, to offer financial support to as many students as possible on a merit basis. Already, regional and local students will have opportunities to work on campus in the Saunders Writing Center, and one student from the January cohort will be selected to serve as the editor for the Tampa Review online. As soon as more funding and other opportunities become available, we will post details and instructions. Please check back. In the meantime, you may wish to explore the Financial Aid and Scholarships sections below.
Students enrolled in the MFA program are considered full-time for financial aid purposes and are eligible for federal Stafford Loans. Interested students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year they wish to receive aid. Your financial aid counselor will send you a financial aid award letter detailing your loan eligibility, instructions on how to accept your loans and other documents required before your aid may be disbursed.
Students eligible for veterans' educational benefits may also use these funds to assist with program costs.
