Named for Bucknell's renowned literary alumnus and initiated in the fall of 1993, the Philip Roth Residence in Creative Writing offers up to four months of unfettered writing time for a writer working on a first or second book. In alternate years, the residency is awarded to poets and writers of prose (fiction or creative nonfiction). The residency provides lodging in Bucknell's "Poets' Cottage" and a stipend of $5,000.

In the spring semester of 2019, the Stadler Center will accept applications for the 2019-20 Philip Roth Residencies, which will be awarded to fiction/nonfiction writers. The application deadline is Feb. 1, 2019. For eligibility and application requirements, and to submit an application, please use the Stadler Center Application Portal.
