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 179 full fellowships and offered 169 partial awards to fellowship finalists and semifinalists to enroll in our workshops and retreats for free or at reduced cost—almost 100% of which have gone to students from historically underserved communities. All together these students have saved over $85,000 in tuition.

Our winter–spring fellowship application period is now closed. We’ll be accepting applications for our summer 2023 workshop season in early May—check back then!
