The Whiting Writers’ Aid Fund

Travel and Financial Awards

The Whiting Writers’ Aid Fund

Established in 1998

Through a gift from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation, the Colony awards grants of up to $1,500 each to writers needing financial assistance to attend MacDowell. This program, made possible by the foundation’s generous support since 1998, provides a significant benefit to writing Fellows and serves as a model for stipend programs in other disciplines for which funding is being sought. In 2019, we awarded 40 grants totaling $34,288.
