Karen Schmeer Fellowship

There are presently no open calls for applications.


Thank you for your interest in the Fellowship.

Our 2018 Open Call begins on August 2, 2017. Applications must be submitted online by 11:59 pm E.S.T., Friday, September 29, 2017. 

Please read the 
Application Guidelines and FAQ available on our website before completing this application. 

While our form does have a "save draft" function at the bottom of the application page, as a precaution we suggest that you prepare your answers in a text document before pasting them into the submission form.

Questions marked with a red asterisk are required.

For letters of recommendation and resume, please upload .pdf files to the online application.

We ask our applicants to submit an online version of their feature film work sample. If you have any questions or concerns about doing this, please email us at info@karenschmeer.com as soon as possible.


For links we prefer Vimeo. (You may use a similar service, but we've found Vimeo to be the most reliable.) The link must be live for the period between September 29, 2017 and January 15, 2018. Please consult Vimeo's Compression Guidelines before uploading: http://vimeo.com/help/compression
