The fellowship combines virtual and in-person programming in two classes per year of 10-12 fellows per class.
The program includes:
The Institute is particularly interested in supporting projects that examine the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: conﬂict and security; democracy and governance; education; environment and climate change; food security; gender, race, sexual orientation, disability and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and sustainability and resilience.
The Institute encourages and accept applications from creators at all stages of work — from preparing an outline to completing a final draft or from storyboarding a narrative to wrapping up a final cut. Whatever stage of completion, we ask that fellows commit to a plan of action for what they hope to achieve during the program (with the understanding that the work plan may be revised following the commencement of the fellowship and first expert mentoring session.)
