The English Department at the University of Texas at Austin offers a variety of creative writing contests and funding opportunities for our graduate students. With the help of some very generous donors, these gifts are designed to support talented students by helping them develop their careers beyond our campus.
Crawley Research Grant
Upon completing their second semester in the program, students in the New Writers Project receive financial assistance from the Crawley Research Grant. This funding is designed to help our writers continue to write and research new material during the summer. UT alumnus John Crawley created the grant as his way of giving back to the creative writing program that impacted his student life and future career.
