The Logan Nonfiction Program accepts applications from: Nonfiction writers; Photojournalists; Documentary filmmakers; Podcasters and radio reporters and Multimedia creators. Applicants must be at work on a long-form project in order to apply (e.g.: an article, book, film, collection, podcast, etc.).
They do accept applications from academics and non-professional journalists, as long as the intended audience of the project is the general public. They are particularly interested in supporting projects that examine the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: conflict and security; democracy and governance; education; environment and climate change; food security; gender, race, sexual orientation, disability and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and sustainability and resilience.
Fellows are selected for the program based on the quality, relevance, professional experience and promise of the applicant’s work. Here you can find the application guidelines.
The Logan Nonfiction Program believes that an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of democratic society.
As a society, we rely on journalists to filter misinformation, ensure transparency and provide us with accurate and unbiased content. Yet, journalists are required to work with fewer resources, tighter deadlines and more pressure than ever before.
Founded in 2015, the Logan Nonfiction Program directly supports nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists and multimedia creators so they can tell the stories that matter. The fellows are dedicated to bravely revealing inequality, illuminating untold truths and investigating the most pressing issues of the day through long-form narrative.
Ultimately, the Logan Nonfiction Program helps to equip citizens with the information they need to lead constructive discourse and create sustainable change in our world.
Fellowships range between 5-10 weeks and take place on the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York.
They provide lodging, work space (eg: office) and access to multimedia technologies.
The residency is located on our 100-acre historic estate in Rensselaerville, NY (2.5 hours north of New York City).
