Here’s a bit of good news from Bucknell University, where the Stadler Fellowship is administered. The fellowship’s stipend (which was $12,000) is now $20,000. That’s a nice increase (the fellowship also includes housing in a furnished apartment on campus, office space, and health insurance). The next fellowship application deadline is December 2, 2006. For more information about this fellowship, which “offers a recent MFA, MA, or PhD graduate in poetry professional training in arts administration, literary editing, and teaching” and “is designed to balance the development of professional skills with time to complete a first book of poems,” visit the Stadler Center Web site. NB: No application fee!
