Nicholl grant program opens

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced that the ninth annual Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting has gotten under way and that as many as five $ 25,000 fellowships will be awarded through the program.

The program is open to writers worldwide whose scripts are written in English.

Entrants may not have sold, optioned or worked professionally on a screenplay or teleplay. Entries will be accepted through May 2.

The Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting program was established in 1985 by the Academy with funding from a grant given by Gee Nicholl to identify new screenwriters and allow them to concentrate exclusively on their craft without the need to support themselves with other work.

The fellowships are granted with the understanding that the recipients will complete a feature screenplay during the course of the fellowship year. To qualify, entrants must submit an original, full-length feature script, along with their application form and a $ 25 entry fee.

For more information and an application form, send a business-size, self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Nicholl Fellowships, Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Dept. H., 8949 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90211.
