Sonny Mehta Fellowships in Creative Writing

Sonny Mehta

The Iowa Writers' Workshop is thrilled to announce the Sonny Mehta Fellowships in Creative Writing, two new graduate fellowships for international students in creative writing, made possible by an endowed gift from Gita Mehta in honor of the late Sonny Mehta, distinguished literary publisher of Alfred A. Knopf.

Starting in 2022, the Graduate Program in Creative Writing will award two full funded fellowships for international students, with preference given to applicants from underrepresented countries, particularly the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East, and North Africa.

To Apply: Please submit your graduate program application to the Iowa Writers' Workshop. The awards will be given to eligible international students upon acceptance to either the fiction or poetry program.
