Stowe Story Labs Fellowships
Our vision is to support as many participants through fellowships and partial scholarships to the Fall Lab as is possible. There are partial scholarships available as well to the Sidewalk Narrative Lab. We nurture the partnerships listed below to support talented writers, filmmakers, and creative producers attending the Labs. All fellowships cover the fee to attend the fall Story Lab, some include a travel stipend, and include as well:
a 30-minute consultation with entertainment attorney Stacey Davis (a Stowe Story Labs Alum, Fellowship Sponsor and Board Member)
StoryBoard Quick software from Power Production ($130 value)
a free copy of the newest version of Final Draft (a $250 value)
a free 9-Month ISAConnect Membership
There is no separate fellowship application. Of course you can say whether you are interested in a fellowship (and which one or ones you think best suit you and your work), but all applicants are considered for all fellowships if they meet the criteria. If we are not sure, we’ll write you and ask.. Specific fellowships may offer other benefits. The criteria for each fellowship differs, so please review carefully.
