Adelaide Posted April 12, 2021 Share Posted April 12, 2021 (edited) Due to life limitations (not wanting/being able to move), I don't believe a fully funded MFA program is an option for me right now. However, I don't have the cash to spend on the degree, and for me personally, I don't want to take out loans. Or at least make the loans very, very, VERY minimal. ("Minimal" is subjective for everyone, I realize.) I know some schools do partial funding or award a select few a fellowship, but I was also wondering about obtaining non-loan funding outside the institution you're attending. Does anyone know if getting enough money for MFA from outside sources is a thing? I am going to contact my undergrad alma mater too because I do know they award a few alums some money for graduate school and continue researching places that give grants for graduate school. But I'd like to know if anyone here knew anything about this. Is it possible to cobble together enough grant money to fund an MFA? Of course I realize costs of every program differ, but just gauging a general idea, any thoughts, or if anyone has a sweet, sweet grant opportunity they think would fall into this area. I'm a woman in California, if that helps, though I know other demographics may play into it. Thank you!
