Ford Foundation Poetry Grant

University of Arizona Poetry Center logoOur friends in the poetry center at University of Arizona will be benefitted by part of a $200,000 grant, thanks to the Ford Foundation. The grant will be administered by the Academy of American Poets and given over two years to the many members of the Poetry Coalition. U of A is one of the founding members of the Poetry Coalition, and provides literary access to many different audiences. The goal of the grant is to create a national program themed around social importance from leading contemporary poets. To find out more information about the grant, click here.

    This post made me aware of the Poetry Coalition, which I didn’t know much about before. Congrats to the poetry center at U of A!

    I think it’s great that the Ford Foundation wants to help bring awareness to and share the voices of poets across the nation. That sounds like a wonderful goal! I also love how ASU celebrates the achievements of U of A and that, at least for poetry, there’s no rivalry between our schools!
