Grants for Change
During the Black Lives Matter protests of summer 2021, FOW heard from several writers in our community who asked how they could help writers of color. FOW established a new fund, Grants for Change, that will direct support immediately toward deserving writers of color and international students. These grants will allow us to assist new and diverse voices, and encourage writing that reflects the entire American experience.
Until FOW meets the endowment goal of $300,000, we will make 5% of donations available to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, and international writing students who demonstrate need and promise.
