Merit Scholarships Available!

This year, the Seattle Pacific University MFA program has a small number of partial scholarships available!

All accepted applicants at the upcoming admission deadline will be considered for scholarship assistance based upon the quality of their creative writing. That’s good news: there’s no separate application for the scholarships!


Apply before November 15 to begin at the Winter residency. Apply before May 15 to begin at the Summer residency. 

Beth Myhr, an MFA alumna, said, “When I decided, after twenty years of writing, that it was time to go back to school, I looked for three things in a program: intellectual rigor, high standards for the art, and a program that would support what I consider a fact of art—that beautiful work is the soul of our culture. I needed a program that saw the spiritual practice in the writing process. The SPU MFA program was a perfect fit.”
