Grant: Logan Nonfiction Program for Writers, Filmmakers, Photojournalists, Podcasters and Multimedia Creators


The Logan Nonfiction Program is a hybrid fellowship for nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists, podcasters and multimedia creators. The fellowship combines virtual and in-person programming in two classes per year of 10-12 fellows per class.

Fellowships are 10 weeks in length and occur in New York’s spring and late summer. Provisional dates for the coming year are 2 April – 11 June 2022 and 16 July – 24 September 2022. The programme includes:

  • Two non-consecutive weeks in person at the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York. Lodging, meals, workspace, professional guidance and community are provided during these periods.
  • Eight weeks of virtual residency programming to take place in the fellow’s own home.
  • One-on-one formal mentoring sessions with experts in the fellow’s medium, both in person and online.
  • Capacity-building panels from award-winning journalists and filmmakers.
  • Film screenings.
  • Peer-to-peer workshopping with other fellows.
  • Access to virtual coworking spaces to encourage productivity and focus.
  • Informal virtual social spaces and social hours plus sessions focused on professional and personal well-being.
  • Membership in an alumni group of more than 240 exceptional nonfiction creators.

Small groups of two to three individuals wishing to work collaboratively can also apply. A travel stipend to offset costs of fellow’s travel to and from upstate New York is provided.
