Length of Stay:
The Logan Nonfiction Program accepts fellows for two classes per year. The spring class runs from January to April, the fall class from October to December. Within these periods applicants can request a short residency (4-6 weeks) or a long residency (10-12 weeks). The Carey Institute makes every attempt to honor applicants’ first choices, but occasionally an applicant may be offered a residency of a different length or time.
Documentarians, journalists and nonfiction writers working at the professional level in their fields are eligible to apply once each calendar year.
The Carey Institute encourages applicants of all backgrounds to apply for admission, and does not discriminate in its programs and activities against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability, HIV status or veteran status.
Small groups (2 to 3 individuals) of documentarians, journalists or nonfiction writers wishing to work collaboratively are encouraged to apply. Each member of the group will need to submit an individual application and select the “Collaborative Teams” option on the questionnaire.
