Grant Description
Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International individuals to develop a long-form project of nonfiction work. Preference will be given to projects with a focus on current events and issues. Projects may be in the form of documentaries, photojournalism, podcasts, nonfiction writing, and multimedia.

The fellowship combines virtual and in-person programming in two classes per year of 10-12 fellows per class.

The program includes:

  • Two nonconsecutive weeks in person at the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York. Lodging, meals, workspace, professional guidance and community are provided during these periods.
  • Eight weeks of virtual residency programming to take place in the fellow’s own home.
  • One-on-one formal mentoring sessions with experts in the fellow’s medium, both in person and online.
  • Capacity-building panels from award-winning journalists and filmmakers.
  • Film screenings.
  • Peer-to-peer workshopping with other fellows.
  • Access to virtual coworking spaces to encourage productivity and focus.
  • Informal virtual social spaces and social hours plus sessions focused on professional and personal well-being.
  • Stipends to be used for travel to and from the Carey Institute in upstate New York.
  • Membership in an alumni group of more than 240 exceptional nonfiction creators.

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.)
