Support the MFA

Portland State University's MFA in Creative Writing program is the only full-time creative writing graduate program in Portland. It has already received national recognition for the quality of its faculty and the success of its students—but becoming one of the premier MFA programs in the country depends upon your support. Please consider donating to one of the funds below.


  • The MFA Fund puts your donation where it can do the most good: funding student scholarships, bringing visiting writers to campus, creating internship opportunities, supporting student travel to writing conferences, and much more.
  • The Giving Back Fellowship is awarded to nonfiction students entering their second year, on the basis of excellence, need, and standing in the program. It is supported in part by alumni who give back to help those coming after them.
  • The Creative Writing MFA welcomes support in the form of named scholarships and bequests. Please contact us about making a commitment to future generations of Portland State writers.
