Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival Fellowship Program


Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival
March 31-April 3, 2016, Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY

The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival Fellows program brings outstanding doctoral students from groups underrepresented in higher education to Ithaca College for four days to participate in screenings, lectures, and workshops within an engaging, interdisciplinary environment.

The festival fellows engage Ithaca College faculty and students from across campus as well as with festival guests to explore linkages between sustainable development, globalization, race, ethnicity and gender in order to stimulate new research and thinking in the areas of sustainability.

Doctoral students from a wide variety of disciplines are encouraged to apply for a FLEFF Fellowship. The fellowship covers transportation (up to $500 for air fare), shared accommodations, meals in Ithaca and a festival pass.

Applicants should submit a CV and a personal essay. The essay should explain how attending FLEFF might enhance your education and how the theme of the 2015 Festival, LANDSCAPES, may relate to your academic or professional interests. Applicants who are at least in the third year of a doctoral program will be given preference.

The essays and CV should be emailed to: More information about FLEFF is available at:
