Fejos Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ethnographic Film: Open to Undocumented Students with or without DACA who have a PhD

The Wenner-Gren Foundation administers the Fejos Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ethnographic Film for scholars who have received a PhD in anthropology and related fields who seek to make an ethnographic film or multi-media project about their research! Fejos fellowships provide up to $40,000 for a 9-month stipend. This fellowship is open to undocumented students with or without DACA.

From the foundation: “Early-career scholars frequently lack the time and resources needed for film production. Through this program, we support projects that will impact the field of anthropology and beyond through innovative work in film and other media. The Foundation has no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. We encourage the use of novel production strategies in terms of technique, process, approach, and the integration of film and video with other media suitable to anthropology. We encourage new solutions to the challenge of ethically representing diverse communities—for instance, by seeking their permission through public forums, guaranteeing their right to the materials produced, and releasing copyrights to them.”


  • “Have to have completed a PhD in anthropology or a related field.
  • Applicants may apply for a Fejos Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ethnographic Film up to 10 years after earning their PhD.
  • The Foundation will make allowances for periods of caregiving.
  • Qualified scholars of any nationality or institutional affiliation may apply.
  • The Foundation gives preference to applicants who are untenured or do not yet have a permanent academic position.”

The application deadline is May 1, 2023 for fellowships beginning between January 1 and December 31, 2024.
