MVICW is able to provide a number of need and merit-based grants (25-50%) to attend our program. Consideration is given to applicants demonstrating economic need. To apply for financial assistance, send a sample of your writing (3 poems or 10 pages of fiction) and a letter of interest. The application fee is $25. Please indicate if you are applying for a specific week or are open to a grant for any of our offered weeks.
