diana1The Raab Writing Fellows Program in the Writing Program at UC Santa Barbara supports a select group of UCSB undergraduates in year-long projects to further their engagement with writing. The program is funded by a generous gift from UCSB Trustee Diana Raab. A published author, editor, poet, and inspirational speaker, Diana understands the power of writing to transform and empower individuals.

The program develops the academic and professional writing of students via one-on-one work with Writing Program faculty. Moreover, students have the opportunity to collaborate with the cohort of other Raab Writing Fellows, building a strong bond and writing network for their activities at UCSB and beyond. Students present their work at a final showcase in toward the end of spring quarter.
