What's the deal with The Google Computer Science in Media Fellowship?
The Black List is pleased to announce a partnership with Google’s Computer Science Education in Media program to offer financial grants totaling $45K in support of the development of three scripts with a focus on changing the image of computer science and computer scientists in popular culture.
In fall 2016, the Black List will distribute up to $15K to each of three screenwriters (one feature writer, two writers of episodic pilots) for the purpose of supporting those writers for six months as they work on future feature screenplays and/or teleplays. After six months, each fellowship must provide Google with a sample of his/her new work along with a report addressing how the grant has been used to advance his/her work and/or impacted his/her career. Writers will retain all rights to the work written with the support of this fellowship.
Writers may opt into consideration beginning now until 11:59 pm on July 15, 2016. Shortly thereafter, the Black List will deliver a short list of writers to Google for final consideration. Those writers will also be expected to provide additional information about their professional background and plans for a screenplay, feature or episodic pilot, that may change the perception of computer science and computer scientists in popular culture. All evaluations purchased by 11:59 PT on June 15, 2016 will be guaranteed consideration as part of this opportunity.
To opt in for consideration for the Google Computer Science Education in Media Fellowship, please review the additional information here. Please do not hesitate to email us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because our finalists are determined by examining all data about opted in scripts for site partnerships, we strongly advise purchasing at least one evaluation. In the event that the purchase of a single evaluation is cost prohibitive, please follow us on social media and the Black List blog where opportunities for free and discounted evaluations appear from time to time.
