Fireline Fellowship / Due: May 3

Set on the slopes of the Western Cascades, near Corvallis, Oregon, the Fireline Fellowship invites writers, artists, and thought leaders in the humanities to become part of a thinking community that, for two and a half years, will explore issues related to wildfire at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. Fellows will meet in person with scientists and stay at the Andrews Experimental Forest, and then will meet quarterly online. Fellows will receive a stipend, opportunities to learn alongside scientists in the field, and up to four weeks of residency time at the Andrews Experimental Forest. Fellows will develop new projects for a public audience and/or involving public engagement.

Fellowships are open to those who are experienced in using creative or humanistic methods to approach environmental questions, to those willing to invest in long-term exploration of issues connected with wildfire in the Pacific Northwest, and to those committed to creating new public work inspired by their experience in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest.

Applicants from historically under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. Applications should be submitted by individuals rather than by collaborative teams. This opportunity is open to current U.S. residents only and includes:

  • Artists, including visual artists, multimedia artists, musicians and filmmakers.
  • Writers and storytellers across genres including nonfiction, fiction, graphic narrative and poetry.
  • Writers, scholars and thought leaders in humanities disciplines including philosophy, ethics, history, religious studies and beyond.
