Creative Writing Scholarship

The English Department at Lebanon Valley College invites prospective students majoring in Creative Writing to submit a portfolio for review for a Creative Writing Fellows Scholarship. Two scholarships will be awarded and based solely on the quality of the work.


Our diverse courses help creative writing students gain invaluable knowledge that aids in their chosen paths, but real-world experience in the form of internships adds another element to prepare each student for the future. In the past, English Department majors have represented LVC at companies and organizations all over the world, and our experienced Breen Center for Graduate Success staff can offer help through every step of the way. 


Many of our English Department majors are members of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, and some have even had some of their written works published. The English Department faculty and staff make sure that each student has the opportunity to succeed.

“I have incredible respect for the entire LVC English Department. The literature and ideas that I was exposed to and wrote about have made me a more empathetic and action-oriented person. My goal for my Fulbright grant is to use literature as a tool to expose my students to various backgrounds and experiences.”
