If you are intersested in scholarships, we suggest you begin by perusing the College of Arts and Sciences scholarships and also review the scholarships listed under General and Miscellaneous, Private, and UA Statewide Scholarships.
There is one scholarship specifically for Creative Writing students called the UAA April Relyea Scholarship.
UAA's scholarship deadline is typically February 15th. While this deadline is several weeks before CWLA acceptance notification is mailed, incoming students are allowed to apply for the scholarships and may be awarded the scholarship if 1) they are accepted into the CWLA program and 2) the scholarship review committee awards them the scholarship.
