The Stadler Fellowship at Bucknell University is open to applications until December 6 (there's no application fee). "Initiated in 1998, the Stadler Fellowship offers a recent MFA, MA, or PhD graduate in poetry the opportunity to receive professional training in arts administration and literary editing. The Stadler Fellowship is designed to balance the development of professional skills with time to complete a first book of poems. The Stadler Fellow assists for twenty hours each week in the administration of the Stadler Center for Poetry and/or in the editing of West Branch, a nationally distinguished semiannual literary magazine. The Fellow also works as an instructor and staff member in the Bucknell Seminar for Younger Poets in June. The Fellowship stipend is $20,000. In addition, the Fellow is provided a furnished apartment on campus, office space in the Stadler Center, and health insurance." Details here.
