Kenyon Institute Financial Aid and Scholarships

The Kenyon Institute has received contributions allowing it to offer a limited amount of scholarship support for the following Kenyon Institute programs: Kenyon Playwrights Conference, Kenyon Institute in Biomedical and Scientific Writing, and Beyond Walls: Spiritual Writing at Kenyon.

Financial aid will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated writing talent and demonstrated financial need. Because resources are limited, preference will be given to those who can provide a portion of their workshop fee through personal, institutional, and/or denominational resources. We encourage applicants to aim to fund at least two-thirds of the total workshop expense ($1,300 of the $2,000 cost). 

To apply for the program and be considered for financial aid, please:

1)  Complete the online application form.  Financial aid applicants may apply without the $500 deposit.  Once you receive your aid notification, you will have 30 days to submit your deposit to secure your place in the program.

2)  Please provide the following materials for your financial aid application:
