Brooklyn Poets Fellowships

We award fellowships to promising students in need to enroll in one of our workshops 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 211 full fellowships and offered 179 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 $99,000 in tuition.

Our fall fellowship application period is now closed. We’ll be accepting applications for our winter–spring 2024 workshop season early next January—check back then!
