Autumn ’17 Partial Tuition Waiver Scholarships

APPLICATION DEADLINE: No later than September 25.

The M.A. in English and M.A. in Writing and Publishing programs are offering Partial Tuition Scholarships (PTS) to recognize the outstanding academic achievement of students in the English department’s two graduate programs. Partial Tuition Scholarships provide a partial reimbursement for tuition paid for 2017 Autumn graduate courses in English taken toward the MAE and MAWP degrees.

You are eligible to apply for a PTS award if:

  • You have already completed at least two English graduate courses toward your MAE or MAWP degree
  • You are enrolled in one or more English graduate classes for the current spring term
  • You have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.7 or higher
  • You are paying your own tuition and fees (without financial assistance from any grant or scholarship agency or employee reimbursement program, including a Double Demon Award—student loans are okay.)

Please note that only graduate classes offered through the English department (ENG courses) are eligible for PTS funding.  Courses offered through other departments and courses over and above those needed for MAE/MAWP degree completion are not covered by these awards. If you drop a course after receiving a PTS Award for it, you will be required to pay back the amount of the award.

To apply, open the application attachment, save it as a Word document, complete the form, and then send it as an attachment in an e-mail to Ms. Jan Hickey, Assistant Director of Graduate Programs in English, at

The deadline for applying for PTS awards for the 2017 Autumn Quarter is Monday, September 25. All requests for PTS awards must be made electronically, and they must be sent via email. Copies of this memo and of the application can be found on the MAE and MAWP D2L sites under “Content.” They will also be posted on Ex Libris.

You will be notified of an award decision within two weeks after the deadline.
