The festival applauds Kundiman and their dedication to the creation and cultivation of Asian American literature, by offering a comprehensive spectrum of arts programming that gives writers opportunities to inscribe their own stories, transforming and enriching the American literary landscape.
The Kundiman Fellowship includes application fee, tuition, and lodging near the venue and is open by application to past and present Kundiman fellows. The approximate value of the fellowship is $2,000.00. Transportation and food are the responsibility of the fellow.
The recipient will be an outstanding poet who will benefit from and contribute to participation in the workshop. A writing sample, letter of introduction, and description of need are an integral part of the application and selection process. The deadline to apply for these fellowships is November 10, 2017.
