Applications are now being accepted for the 2014–15 Lewis Hine Documentary Fellows Program at the Center for Documentary Studies. Founded on the spirit, values, and actions of photographer Lewis Hine, the program connects the talents of young documentarians with the resources and needs of organizations in the United States that seek creative solutions to the problems faced by women, young adults, adolescents, and children in poor, marginalized areas both at home and abroad. Documentary projects by Hine Fellows—still photography, writing, video, audio, multimedia—are developed in collaboration with the host organization to support its program goals.

The Hine Fellows Program is offering two ten-month fellowships for 2014–15 in the New York City area. The application deadline is 5 p.m., EST, February 28, 2014. For more information, and to download the application form, see Becoming a Hine Fellow.

Applicants must be current Duke University seniors or recent Duke graduates, Duke MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts students graduating in 2013 or 2014, and students and graduates of the continuing education Certificate in Documentary Arts program offered by CDS. The program is also open to current seniors or graduates of the Robertson Scholars Program at Duke and the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill.
