Anyone who self-identifies as Asian American can apply to the Retreat. 


The non-refundable tuition fee is $375. Thanks to the Fordham College at Rose Hill, room and board are provided free to accepted Fellows. We thank our generous donors for making the reduced rate possible in order to nurture the next generation of Asian American writers. The full cost for a Fellow to attend a Retreat would otherwise be $2500.

The application fee is $25.
