Make a gift to the David Kirby Graduate Fellowship and join David and the FSU Creative Writing Program in launching the next generation of promising young poets.


Florida State University has been the academic home of Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor Dr. David Kirby for the first 50 years of his career. David has created a long-lasting legacy for hundreds, if not thousands, of students and colleagues. Now, to properly recognize his scholarship and service at FSU, we launch this project to create an endowment, the David Kirby Graduate Fellowship within Creative Writing.

We invite you to join us in honoring David by making a contribution to the David Kirby Graduate Fellowship. Once established, the David Kirby Graduate Fellowship will support the general needs and priorities of the Creative Writing program and recruitment of graduate students, provide stipend supplements and, among other uses, fund graduate student travel to conferences and invited lectures. The Director of the Creative Writing Program, in consultation with the award-winning poets in FSU's world-class Creative Writing Program, will select promising young poets for this fellowship.

It is our dream to recognize David's 50 years of service with a $50,000 endowment. In the first two weeks, we have already achieved more than our initial goal of $5,000. With your help, we can make our next milestone. 

Our next milestones are below. Please join us in support of this goal.

  • 20% endowed: $5,000
  • 50% endowed: $12,500
  • 80% endowed: 20,000
  • 100% endowed: $50,000
