Please visit the Financial Aid area of our site to learn about assistance programs available at Wilkes University.

Creative Writing Program Graduate Assistantships
Two Graduate Assistantships will be awarded pending on enrollment and retention numbers of our classes. GAs must be in-residence and fully enrolled in the program at the time of the assistantship. GAs will work in the office of the Program Director and support the activities of that office. GAs will perform duties associated with the Creative Writing Program for approximately 30 hours per week. Therefore, computer skills, including being able to update web page content, are a priority. 

Assistantship details
  • Graduate Assistants will receive a small stipend and full tuition remission for a maximum of 18 months.
  • The Norris Church Mailer Fellowship, established by Mr. Norman Mailer, husband of the novelist Norris Church Mailer; other friends; and a gift from the estate of the late Gordon Smith. It is awarded annually to a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program who has artistic promise.
