FLEFF Diversity Scholars Fellowship

Applications are now open for the 2019 FLEFF Diversity Scholars Fellowship program at Ithaca College. The Fellowships bring to Ithaca College up to 20 graduate students from traditionally underrepresented groups in higher education. Participants will discuss their research and career interests with Ithaca faculty and attend the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF) in downtown Ithaca. Preference will be given to students who are 2nd or 3rd year PhD students or late stage MFA’s. This three day event will offer graduate students pursuing a career in higher education an inside look at Ithaca College and showcase Ithaca’s intellectual and artistic environment. 

Diversity Scholars will attend film screenings and FLEFF Workshops and meet Ithaca faculty, students and administrators at several receptions and dinners. The Diversity Scholars will also share their research interests with the Ithaca College community. All reasonable expenses and FLEFF passes will be covered by the FLEFF Diversity Scholars Fellowship.

The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival at Ithaca College embraces and interrogates sustainability across all of its forms: economic, social, ecological, political, cultural, technological, and aesthetic. Whether FLEFF Diversity Scholars are pursuing a degree in the field of business, communications, humanities, music, sciences or health related fields, the Scholars will develop a better understanding of Ithaca’s commitment to issues of diversity, inclusion and sustainability. More FLEFF information is at https://www.ithaca.edu/fleff/.

Application Information

Interested graduate students need to send a CV and a statement (500 words maximum) explaining interest in visiting Ithaca College and attending the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival. Application material or questions should be sent to fleffdiversityscholars2019@gmail.com. Professor Warren Schlesinger is the FLEFF Diversity Scholar Fellowship Coordinator. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis with most fellowships awarded by the week of March 1st.
