Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

We award fellowships to promising students in need to enroll in a workshop, manuscript consultation, or retreat for free. We also offer partial fellowship awards to finalists and semifinalists. Since the inception of our fellowship program in the fall of 2015, we’ve awarded 95 full fellowships and offered 115 partial awards to fellowship finalists and semifinalists—almost 100% of which have gone to students from traditionally underserved communities—and all together these students have saved over $43,000 in tuition.
