Interdisciplinary Fellowships are built on the idea that writers often reach into other fields and practices. This fellowship gives a student both formal and informal access to thinkers, communities, and resources not normally housed inside literature and writing. For instance, let’s say you’re a poet who wants to address the criminal justice system in your work. Once you’re accepted, we’ll pair you with a professor in the Rutgers-Camden Criminal Justice department who will oversee your work. You’ll complete two independent studies during your time here with that professor.
For an inside look at what being an interdisciplinary fellow is like, please see interviews with our first two fellows, Dani Oliver and Alex Luke.
Interdisciplinary MFA students are paid a stipend of approximately $10,000. They may also given teach composition, via an additional appointment, for approximately $6000 per class.← Tell me more about the Interdisciplinary MFA fellowships.
