Reinhardt University offers the Etowah Writers Need-Based Scholarship.  The total amount a student may receive over one academic year is $2,000.  The scholarship is renewable but financial need will be assessed anew in May of each academic year.  Students who wish to be considered for the Etowah Writers Need-Based Scholarship must complete the FAFSA by March 1.  The Office of Financial Aid determines the amount of the scholarship.

Driscoll Regional Study Award: MFA students in the final year of the program are eligible to apply for a scholarship grant from the Driscoll Regional Study Award, provided the student’s creative thesis centers on the Etowah River Valley.  To be considered, applicants must ask the MFA Director and thesis advisor for letters of support.  Send a letter of interest and a description of your project to Mr. Phil Unger at PJU@reinhardt.edu.
