Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival: Fellowships for Emerging Scholars of Color

2011 Festival Fellows Program April 14-17, 2011


The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival Fellows program brings outstanding graduate students of color enrolled in Ph.D programs to campus during the festival to immerse in screenings, lectures, workshops, master classes, concerts, and events within an engaging, interdisciplinary, think-tank environment.

The festival fellows cohort engages with Ithaca College faculty and students from across campus, as well as with festival guests, to explore linkages between sustainable development, different media platforms, globalization, race, ethnicity, gender, and music in order to stimulate new research and thinking in the areas of sustainability, interdisciplinary research, and international issues.

Selection to the festival fellows program is highly competitive; fellows are recruited from graduate programs across the United States in consultation with departments on the Ithaca College campus.

The festival fellows program is an initiative of the Office of Equal Opportunity Compliance.
