Your gift to the Creative Writing Alumni Chapter, through the Fresno State Alumni Association, directly supports the university’s creative writing students, who represent the next generation of Fresno writers.

Our chapter is actively building the Larry Levis Creative Writing Scholarship endowment fund. The first scholarship award will be given to a student in fall 2021, and the target date for fund endowment is fall 2024.

Once endowment level is reached, this means the Levis scholarship fund will support talented creative writers in the university’s Master of Fine Arts Program and English Department in perpetuity, based simply on the endowment’s annual earnings through FSAA. Increasing the endowment will then increase the amount of scholarship funds available, helping attract and retain the best and brightest up-and-coming Fresno writers.

GIVE NOW to the alumni association and support our work!
