The application period for 2021-2022 Flux Fellows is now closed.

Are you a master’s or PhD student who wants to develop your research interests into a narrative-driven episode for FreshEd? Can you imagine your story as an audioscape where you investigate these research interests in complex and creative ways? Then a Flux Fellowship just might be what you’ve been looking for!

As a Flux Fellow you will produce a podcast episode that will have a global perspective while focusing on places that are usually under-represented. Your deep-dive storytelling will be informed by ideas and issues at the forefront of educational research. It will be made for an English-speaking audience (but may include other languages that have been translated into English) and will be between 20-30 minutes long.

You will already possess some of the technical skills required to make the episode (such as, audio editing and knowledge of high-quality audio recording) but we can also provide you with technical assistance and training, if necessary.

We will help motivate, guide and coach you through the process of producing your podcast episode from start to finish. Our boutique learning experience will bring your project to fruition through dedicated mentoring by seasoned academics. Together we will help you develop your initial ideas into a compelling script: constructing interesting narratives, creating soundscapes that complement these stories, while also providing some technical support. Our past Flux Fellows will provide you with valuable insights about their own experiences and you will be encouraged to collaborate with your current cohort to form a supportive community of peers. Best of all: Fellows receive a stipend for their work.

To apply, please send us:

  • An audio biography about yourself (2 minutes max.).
  • A concise written statement of your idea for the episode (600 words max.).
  • Your two-page CV.

Deadline for submissions (no exceptions): October 15th, 2021, at 11:59pm BST

A stipend will be awarded to the successful candidate/s ($2000 USD). The episode will be aired on FreshEd in late 2022.
