University of Texas James Michener Center based in Austin, TX offers a fully funded MFA in creative writing. The MFA program is a three-year, fully funded residency program with a unique interdisciplinary focus. While writers apply and are admitted in a primary genre—fiction, poetry, playwriting, or screenwriting—they also study a secondary genre during their time in Austin. Michener Fellows completed three workshops in a primary field and two in a secondary field. All admitted students receive a fellowship of $29,500 per academic year, plus total coverage of tuition.
