The Maynard 200 fellowship provides cutting-edge training and year-long mentorship for leaders, storytellers and media entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds via the expertise of a distinguished faculty across relevant disciplines. The program supports and emboldens the next generation of leaders, creators and founders of new media ventures.

Candidates can apply for one of three tracks — Storytelling, Advanced Leadership and Media Entrepreneurship.

The program is tuition-free thanks to funding by Google News Initiative, Craig Newmark Philanthropies and The Wunderkinder Foundation. Some travel support will be available for the second training week if it is in person.

The application period opened last year, and the new extended deadline is March 5, 2021.

Fellows are required to attend both training weeks and to participate in the year-long mentorship and supplementary courses.
