What supporting materials do I need to submit?

All applicants must submit a $45 USD application fee, a completed online application, a 3-5 minute video essay outlining your interest in the program, two reference letters from employers or former professors, a link to work samples or a portfolio, an example lesson plan, and three short answer essays explaining 1. How filmmaking empowers underserved youth, 2. How your previous experiences make you the best candidate for a particular country’s program, and 3. A description of previous formal/informal teaching experiences (minimum 6 months teaching experience) and what skills you plan to utilize in order to effectively teach in an underserved overseas classroom. More info.  

Priority Deadline vs. Final Deadline?

Each FWB program has two application deadlines: Priority and Final. Those applications received by the Priority Deadline will receive priority consideration and interviews will begin shortly after submission. Applications received by the Final Deadline will be considered but will be considered after all Priority Deadline applications have been reviewed. FWB may fill the designated positions with candidates who meet the Priority Deadline before the Final Deadline submission period is closed. All interested applicants should apply as early as possible.

When will I be contacted for an interview?

Once you have submitted your online application and supporting materials, FWB’s Director of Admissions will contact you directly to set up a telephone interview within the next few weeks.  Applicants should plan on participating in at least 3 phone/skype/in-person interviews with various members of the FWB staff.  

Can I apply to more than one program?

Yes, applicants are welcome to apply to be considered for more than one program. However, you will need to submit a separate application for each of the country programs. Applicants should pay special attention to the short answer essays and ensure that they submit country-specific rationales for why they are the best candidate for each country’s program.
