Cost to Attend


Thanks to the generosity of the Walter E. Dakin Memorial Fund, supported by the estate of Tennessee Williams, participants receive assistance covering two-thirds of the actual cost to attend. Additional funding is awarded to fellows and scholars. 


Conference Fees (After Assistance)
Contributors - $1,800 ($1,100 for tuition and $700 for room and board)
Scholars - $700 (Conference covers tuition)
Fellowships - Conference covers tuition, room, and board

If admitted to the Conference, a contributor secures a place by sending a deposit of $300 by May 15. The balance of the fee ($1,500) is due in Sewanee by May 30. Deposits are refundable until May 30. After May 30, refunds will be made as previously reserved places are filled.

All participants, including fellows, are responsible for their own travel costs.
