Our Focus

We are an academic leadership program focusing on 3 core elements:
1. Impacting the lives of our fellows.
2. Creating awareness for our subject matter. 
3. Inspiring change in our world. 

How It Works

Each summer, we select a team of "fellows", who consist of talented post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate students, looking to add a practical application to their formal education. Each fellow is paired with one of our award winning mentors for the term of the fellowship to create a documentary film focused on a single issue, cause or story facing our world today.

Our fellows face a wide range of challenges that personally and professionally invoke passion, character and leadership. Framed by our values, passions and ideals, our fellows blend their interdisciplinary backgrounds to best capture and express their findings, experiences and outcomes through film and the arts.

Cost?

Each year the price of the program changes based on location. (The 2017 location and pricing will be announced in the late fall of 2016). Thanks to our incredible Donors, Sponsors, Board of Directors and Partners, the cost of the program has lowered year after year and one day we hope to offer it completely free.  See our incredible Partners and Sponsors here!
