Tuition and Fellowships

The cost of the program is $2,395 due in full one week before the first day of class. Payment plans are availabe with 50% due at least one week before the start of class and the rest usually divided over the first third of the program.

In order to be considered for one of our fellowships, you will have the option to fill out the Fellowship Application section at the end of your application to the program. Only one application is necessary to be considered for any of our funding options. Admitted students can expect notification on their fellowship status at the time of admission to the program. While all Memoir Generator applicants can expect to be notified of their standing by the Memoir Generator Selection Committee, applicants not accepted into the program will not receive a separate notification from the Fellowship Committee.
