Do you like to write and work with writers? Are you interested in teaching or arts administration? Would you like to begin your post-graduate career with a prestigious fellowship? If so, apply to be a Ford Fellow or Kim-Frank Fellow in the Writing Programs next year!
The Writing Programs Fellowships, awarded to graduating seniors at Wesleyan, are prestigious one-year, post-graduate positions. The Fellows work closely with Prof. Anne Greene, Director of Writing Programs, and play a central role in Writing Program development, helping to design new services and events, advertise programs, and develop web sites and online services.
The Fellows also have graduate student status and are eligible to take two academic courses, conduct research, and work collaboratively with faculty members.
Previous Fellows have been admitted to their first choice of graduate and professional schools (including recently Yale, Princeton, and the MFA program at Iowa) and been hired promptly for jobs in publishing, teaching, journalism, law, business and other fields.
