2017 Apothetae at Lark Playwriting Fellowship – Deadline June 15, 2017

This is a two-year residency for a disabled writer. The award includes a $40,000 fellowship stipend paid in monthly increments for two years, plus production funds. The Fellowship is open to candidates throughout the United States. “While The Apothetae and The Lark are based in New York, we are eager to ensure that this program is national in scope. Much of the fellowship activities can occur wherever the selected Fellow resides, and when program activities require the Fellow’s attendance in New York, travel and housing costs will be provided.”

Siblings of Autism Video Scholarship – Deadline July 31, 2017

The 2nd Annual Siblings of Autism Video Scholarship Contest is underway! Siblings of those living with autism are encouraged to develop a short 3-5 minute video that identifies YOUR realities of autism.

“Along with the gifts came the challenges. I would not say it was an easy journey. The dynamics in my household while growing up were at times overwhelming. I recall the many times my brother, Matthew, would self-harm. It was difficult to watch, and even more difficult to understand given that I was so young. Now as an adult, I can understand how those experiences shaped the man that I am today. I want to hear about your experiences and how they shaped you.” –Jason Cherry

Decisions on scholarship winners will be announced late summer. Seven scholarships will be awarded as follows: (1) $10,000, (1) $5,000, and (5) $1,000.

A sibling can be any age. Scholarships awarded can be used for post-secondary education opportunities, other educational pursuits, or camps. For more information about the scholarship contest and to submit your entry, please visit siblingsofautism.org. Now it’s time to get creative and have fun!
