2024 Faber Writing Scholarships

Applications for 2024 Faber Writing Scholarships are now open.

Each year the Faber Writing Academy at Allen & Unwin awards a scholarship for our prestigious Writing Creative Nonfiction program.

Faber Writing Scholarships are open to anyone, and offer successful applicants the chance to study for free.

Applications are now open for the Faber Writing Scholarship for Nonfiction Writers.

One scholarship place will be offered in Writing Creative Nonfiction with Rebecca Giggs.

Please ensure you have read all the Faber Academy Scholarship terms and conditions before making your application. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

The deadline is midnight on Friday 1 December.

To apply, you will need to submit:

· An online application answering several questions asked by our tutors

· An attachment with a sample of up to 1,000 words of prose

The sample of prose you submit should ideally be from the work you intend to develop during the course, but if this is not possible, it is useful if it’s something not too dissimilar in terms of genre and voice.

Your writing sample must be saved as a single Word file, with your full name as the title of the document. Please do not include any other wording in the saved title other than your first and last name. Do not save as a PDF, or any other file format other than Word.
