Alumni Giving

IWP Alumni Scholarship

By giving to the IWP Alumni Scholarship, your donation will have a direct impact for one of our incoming students. Once we reach our goal for the next year’s scholarship, we will save additional donations in a restricted account with the intent that, once we raise enough, IWP management would recommend to the Board of Trustees that we create an endowment for the IWP Alumni Scholarship. This future endowment would benefit students for years to come.

This scholarship consists of gifts raised from IWP alumni, and it is awarded annually to a student in the Certificate, Master’s, or Doctoral program.

To allow this scholarship to have the greatest impact, the recipient is chosen by the Admissions Committee, with input from the Office of Graduate Recruitment. This arrangement will allow for the greatest flexibility in conferring the scholarship on an excellent student for whom it will be truly helpful and impactful.

We hope that you will consider supporting one of IWP’s future students.

The IWP Library Expansion and Protection Fund

Through The IWP Library Expansion and Protection Fund, we are gathering support to purchase and install a low-oxygen fire suppression system to replace the water sprinklers that would harm our rare books.  

We then plan to equip the library with new tables, new collapsible shelving units that will allow us to house more books and meet other vital needs.
