The Undocupoets Fellowship annually grants $500 fellowships, with no strings attached, to poets who are currently or who were formerly undocumented in the United States to help defray the cost of poetry-related submission fees.
For the 2022 cycle, three $500 Undocupoets Fellowships will be awarded. Through our continued partnership with Catapult, each Fellow will also receive a scholarship for a six-week workshop (or its equivalent value toward other Catapult classes) of their choosing.
Honoring our foundational, five-year partnership with the Sibling Rivalry Press Foundation, Undocupoets remains committed to reserving at least one of the fellowships to LGBTQ poets who are currently or who were formerly undocumented in the United States.
While no single fellowship recipient will receive more than $500 in any given year, Fellowships can be awarded to the same individual for multiple years.
Applications for 2023 Fellowship will open in November
