Memoir Incubator Fellowship Applicants

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the Memoir Incubator.

We strive to locate support for our program participants who need it, and may be able to offer awardees 25%-75% support, depending on our funding in a given year, and the number of successful applicants. Thanks to the generous support of the Pechet Foundation, we are able to award one or two fellowships in honor of Pauline Scheer.

We are also able to award merit-based fellowships thanks to the Judy Layzer Memorial Fund.

In order to be considered for one of our fellowships, please fill out the fellowship section of the Memoir Incubator application. Only one application is necessary to be considered for any of our funding options. Applicants can expect notification of their fellowship decision along with their class decision. While all Memoir Incubator applicants can expect to be notified of their standing by the Memoir Incubator Selection Committee, applicants not accepted into the program will not receive a separate notification from the Fellowship Committee. 

Applications for the 2023-2024 Memoir Incubator are now open. Click here to apply! Applications are due April 3rd, 2023, by 11:59PM EST.
