Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize.

The Alpine Fellowship is set to hold the Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize for 2019. The application form is already out for the program.

According to Wikipedia, the Alpine Fellowship is a charity project with the broad aim of ‘promoting culture and the arts’.

The Fellowship aims to create a “dialogue between the disciplines” by having people ‘talk and share ideas in a respectful spirit that makes a refreshing and uplifting contrast to the frenetic, angry tone of much contemporary discourse.’ It has been described as being ‘the antidote to too much time spent on social media in the digital age. In addition to the annual symposium, the Fellowship provides ongoing financial support for young playwrights, writers and artists. In 2015 The Alpine Fellowship endowed the ‘Alpine Fellows’ program at NYU(New York University) ensuring financial support for students pursuing interdisciplinary research at the Graduate Level at NYU(New York University). The Fellowship is above all committed to supporting those who want to help us better understand and appreciate each other through cultural means.

This is an opportunity for youths from different nationalities who have the ability to convey a thoughtful message through writing thereby sharing a thought or suggestion about a particular area of need which has to do with the society at large.

Interested persons are to carefully read/take note of the requirements and apply if eligible and should do so before deadline.

The Alpine Fellowship is a group of writers, thinkers and artists who are passionate about learning and communicating with a view to better understanding themselves and others. We value a capacity for openness – being engaged in critically reflecting on firmly held beliefs; the courage to be vulnerable – speaking from a place of lived experience; the drive for curiosity – being truly able to receive and listen to others. 

They think it important to support young people today who may have become somewhat disillusioned by the reality of modern day education. They care about discovering what an alternative model of education might look like. Hence the spirit of the enterprise is necessarily open ended, and they welcome and seek the support, contribution and presence of anyone who relates to what they care about.This prize will be awarded for the best piece of writing on the topic of ‘Identity’ – the theme of the 2019 Alpine Fellowship Annual Symposium.
