The Felipe P. De Alba Fund for Writers provides merit fellowships of up to $15,000 for MFA students in Fiction. Students may not apply for a De Alba fellowship. A panel comprised of two members of the Writing Program faculty and one established writer from outside Columbia University selects recipients from a pool of candidates nominated by the Chair of the Writing Program and the Dean of the School of the Arts in consultation with faculty in the Writing Program. Fellowship recipients are notified in April of their first year of study. Nominees may be asked to submit writing samples. Funds are disbursed in the fall of the following year and applied to the cost of tuition and fees.

The Henfield Prize, established through the generosity of the Joseph F. McCrindle Foundation, is one of the most prestigious awards available to young fiction writers. The Prize, which recognizes the best work in fiction by a second-year graduate student in the Writing Program, is given annually at the end of the academic year, and carries an award of $10,000. The Prize is judged by the Writing Program’s full-time fiction faculty. Columbia is one of five universities nationally whose creative writing programs have been selected to award an annual Henfield Prize.
