As part of a strategic priority to diversify the documentary field, the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University (CDS) invites applications from people from groups underrepresented in the documentary arts for one (1) ten-month Post-MFA Fellowship in the Documentary Arts, to begin on September 1, 2019. The fellowship is part of CDS’s Documentary Diversity Project, a three-year pilot program whose goal is to build pathways for more people of color to engage with the documentary arts and to become nonfiction storytellers, gatekeepers, and critical consumers; to support their achievements; and to promote their work. The pilot is made possible, in part, by a grant from the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust.
