Disruptors Fellowship 2021 Application

The Center for Cultural Power is pleased to announce the application is now open for the second cycle of The Disruptors Fellowship

Co-created and launched in 2020 by The Center for Cultural Power and 5050by2020, this fellowship aims to disrupt Hollywood and its persistent lack of diverse narratives by offering emerging writers the opportunity to use their unique voices to tell their stories for a true representation of what this country looks like.

After a successful first year, this year’s fellowship offers a three-month learning program to ten LA-based television writers of color who identify as trans and/or non-binary, disabled, undocumented and/or formerly undocumented immigrants. “For us it is important to support cultural shifts and disrupt the norm so that communities who have been kept out of writing rooms are able to break through. With this fellowship we are providing future generations not only with tools and a skill set but also with a network that will support and help them achieve their goals as storytellers,” says Favianna Rodriguez, President and Co-founder of The Center for Cultural Power. 

The Disruptors Fellowship will include mentorship, professional development, master classes and a $6,000 stipend. 

Applications are now open through March 19, 2021
