Application Guidelines

Process for UTV 2023

Regular acceptance to all master classes will be made on a rolling basis until all slots are full

Acceptance to UTV master classes is based on literary promise and/or accomplishment as demonstrated in your writing sample and the information on your application form, as well as the intent conveyed in your cover letter. We read every word you send us and do our best to ensure a good match between prospective participants and the program as a whole.

Financial Aid

Under the Volcano offers partial financial aid based on proof of your past three months of monthly income and expenses. Such proof (recent tax forms, pay stubs or bank statements and receipts for housing, as well as evidence of continuing obligations such as loans) should be uploaded with your application. Due to volume we are unable to consider supporting documents submitted as email attachments or after the fact.

Please note that Under the Volcano is not able to provide complete financial aid except to full fellowship recipients. If finances will be an issue, we encourage you to seek outside funding from other sources. Upon request we will provide successful applicants with a formal letter to help them seek additional support beyond what we can provide.

For information on full fellowships please visit the fellowships page.
