Writing Fellows Program

ALERT:  The CUNY Writing Fellows competition for 2011-2012 is only open to Enhanced Chancellor’s Fellows in year four of their studies (admitted fall 2007).  The compensation for the CWF in 2011-2012 is $20,801.

CUNY Writing Fellowship (CWF) Program will provide the fifth year of funding for the Enhanced Chancellor’s Fellowships (ECF). Beginning in the 2011-12 competition, the pool of applicants will be limited to ECF recipients. All CWFs are hired as Graduate Assistant As in a nonteaching capacity and are placed on the Graduate Center's payroll for the 12-month calendar year (September 1 through August 31). CWFs are under contract to work a total of 450 nonteaching hours over the academic year (225 hours per semester), which usually translates into15 hours per week. While employed in the Graduate Assistant A title, CWFs cannot hold any other teaching or nonteaching instructional title within CUNY.
