We welcome writers with unique voices to apply for the Pace Storytelling for Equity and Inclusion Fellowship, supported by a three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Fellows Program will offer pre-professional experiences to complement classroom learning as a pathway to meaningful writing careers through a robust range of mentoring, workshops, an internship, and networking opportunities.
This paid fellowship begins each spring semester and is followed by a full-time summer internship, concluding with follow-up activities in the fall. Meet the first cohort of students in an interview conducted over the summer.
If selected, Pace Storytelling fellows will commit to the following:
⇒ Monthly Workshops, Seminars, and Events that will advance students’ professional skills and knowledge beyond the classroom. These programs, which will draw on the collective insight and real-world experience of industry professionals, are geared toward developing creative excellence and mastery of the writing craft, as well as giving professional insight into how to successfully navigate this highly competitive field.
⇒ Full-Time Paid Internship with artistic and creative organizations that match your career interests in the writing arena during summer 2020.
⇒ In-House Mentor Network that will match Fellows with Pace faculty and staff to achieve
academic and professional success, including assistance with graduate school applications and/or career and job search guidance.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $3000 in the spring, $5000 for a full-time summer internship, and $3000 in the fall, provided they fully participate.
Interested students should fill out the above application by October 16, 2020 for consideration. Questions about the program or application should be directed to program coordinator Lucia Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finalists will be interviewed the week of November 2nd, 2020.
