Humanities Sustainability Fellowship



2022 Sundance Institute | Humanities Sustainability Fellowship

The Sundance Institute | Humanities Sustainability Fellowship will provide 20 direct, unrestricted stipends to supplement the income of U.S.-based underemployed nonfiction mediamakers whose work and livelihood have been grossly affected by the pandemic. Selected mediamakers working on humanities-focused projects will receive monthly stipends of $5,000 per month over the course of 12 months. Grantees will be paired with paid humanities advisors to support the mediamaker through the granting term (April 2022–March 2023) with dedicated mentorship, project advice, and other tailored non-financial support.

We hope that by providing mediamakers with monthly stipends, we will alleviate the financial burden the pandemic has had on the creative minds leading the field in recovery from the impacts of COVID, and by pairing artists with humanities advisors, we will help foster community and collaboration between humanities practitioners and mediamakers. Applicants from underrepresented communities in the humanities are greatly encouraged and will be prioritized.

This fellowship is part of the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grantmaking program (#SHARP), which is an emergency relief program intended to fund grantmaking programs that assist organizations and individuals working in the humanities who have been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and require support to restore and sustain their core activities. The funding is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Application opens: October 15, 2021
