Vice-Cencom Fellowship Program

Center for Communication

VICE Media and the Center for Communication are launching a fellowship program, open to students across the country, that will place two journalism students from underrepresented communities at VICE in the Summer of 2016.

Participants in the program will intern at VICE for eight weeks during the summer and will also have opportunities to engage with other media organizations, arranged by the Center for Communication. The fellowship will cover travel, housing, and offer a $5,000 stipend for the fellows.

While at VICE, fellows will receive individual instruction and guidance from award‐ winning journalists, producers, and editors. Fellows will also have access to VICE’s state of the art edit suites, production studios and will be encouraged to create and present their own work for review at the end of the program. The Center will also organize three On Location events for the fellows to serve as an introduction to the NYC media landscape.

This fellowship is part of a series of initiatives designed to advance both organizations’ commitment to diversifying the media landscape and ensure greater access to careers in journalism for the next generation of innovative storytellers.

Announcing a VIDA Fellowship for The Home School Conference

Small-Vida-Logo
In August 2014, The Home School launched in Hudson, New York—an annual six-day intensive writing conference for poets interested in radicalizing their poetic craft through a consideration of other art forms (music, dance, visual arts, cinema). Home School’s curriculum is centered around four daily activities: morning calisthenics lead by acclaimed teaching artists; afternoon workshops lead by a renowned experimental poetry faculty (approx. 14 participants each); afternoon artist talks from contemporary masters centered around collaboration; and evening poetry readings by faculty and visiting poets.

Home School Miami 2016 will provide one VIDA fellow with full tuition waiver (1175 USD) plus an honorarium (500 USD) for travel or hotel accommodations within walking distance of their Miami Beach campus. While in residency, the selected fellow will participate in all Home School activities (including readings by Natalie Diaz, Renee Gladman, Jorie Graham, and Mira Gonzalez) and select their choice of workshop leader with one of the core faculty workshop instructors: Timothy Donnelly, Adam Fitzgerald, Dorothea Lasky, Cathy Park Hong, Tan Lin, Maggie Nelson or Mónica de la Torre.

Applicants will be vetted by the VIDA Board of Directors and results will be announced in September 2015.
