A NEW FELLOWSHIP FOR VETERANS:

SOLSTICE MFA IN CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAM ANNOUNCES

A NEW FELLOWSHIP FOR VETERANS:

The Francis L. Toner Fellowship for Veterans

[Chestnut Hill, MA, April 12, 2018] The Solstice Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program of Pine Manor College is thrilled to announce a new fellowship for veterans. In light of the establishment of this fellowship, the program is extending its application deadline to April 30, 2018, for a summer/fall 2018 start.

Established by Solstice MFA Program student Mark Jednaszewski, the Francis L. Toner Fellowship for Veterans honors the memory of LTJG Toner, USN, who in 2011 was awarded the Silver Star (posthumously) for his service, gallantry, and self-sacrifice on behalf of his fellow officers in Afghanistan. The Fellowship provides either a $1,000 tuition wavier toward the recipient’s first semester or free room & board on campus for his/her first year in the Solstice MFA Program. {To read Lt. Toner’s Silver Star citation, click here: https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/a/francis-l-toner-iv.html.}

Another Solstice MFA Program Fellowship is still available for a student starting the program this summer/fall: The Kurt Brown Fellowship for Diverse Voices. Through the generous support of Laure-Anne Bosselaar (wife of the late Kurt Brown) and family, Lee Hope, and the Solstice Institute, the Solstice MFA Program is able to award The Kurt Brown Fellowship to support an incoming student of diverse background or experience who also demonstrates financial need. The Fellowship provides $1,500 to a first-semester student who begins the program during the summer residency/fall semester. Writers of all genres are welcome to apply. The Kurt Brown Fellowship especially seeks to support individuals from cultural, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds who otherwise might not be adequately represented in the program.

Scholarship Opportunities for Military Veterans

Ankin Law Office is offering two new scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year for United States Armed Forces military veterans.  One of these is for any military veteran or immediate family member and the other is for a disabled veteran.  These scholarships differ from most others as the veteran can choose between trade/vocational schools, 2 year or 4 year universities.  This is the inaugural year for both of these but you can see the list of previous winners of other scholarships at 

https://ankinlaw.com/ankin-law-office-scholarship-winners/.  We would like you to post the links to these scholarships on the state VFW website so the veterans in Virginia will have the opportunity to apply.
