The UEA Booker Prize Foundation Scholarship

The UEA Booker Prize Foundation Scholarship is awarded to a Postgraduate student within the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing to enable them to study on the MA/MFA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) course.

The School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia has a long-established international reputation in literary studies. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), UEA was ranked joint tenth in the UK for the quality of its research in English Language and Literature (Times Higher REF 2014 Analysis), with 82 per cent of our research rated either 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent). World famous for our pioneering courses in creative writing, we are also home to prize-winning scholars and translators of literature and drama from all periods.

Our unique approach to the study of literature and writing is powered by our conviction that – to quote Ezra Pound – ‘literature is news that stays news'. At all levels of study, and on all degree courses, our School is the place where criticism and creativity go hand in hand.

The UEA Booker Prize Foundation Scholarship is worth up to £25,000, available as a tuition fee discount and stipend.
