The Salt Fellowship

As part of Salt at MECA’s commitment to training the next generation of storytellers, we are pleased to offer the Salt Fellowship. The Fellowship will focus on supporting students from underrepresented communities who have been accepted into the fifteen-week Salt Graduate Certificate Program in Documentary Studies at MECA. Each term the Fellowship Committee will award one full-tuition scholarship or two partial scholarships; funds will be allocated at the discretion of the committee.

Fellowships will be available starting in the Spring of 2019; applications are now open.

Interested applicants are required to complete both the standard Salt application and the Salt Fellowship application, which consists of a separate 500-word essay.

Please complete your Fellowship application after you have completed the standard application. Your Fellowship application cannot be reviewed until your Salt application has been processed.
