Application open for Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) 2022. Up to $20,000.

The Black List is thrilled to announce that it has once again partnered with NRDC’s (Natural Resources Defense Council) Rewrite the Future program, The Redford Center, and The CAA Foundation to launch a second iteration of the NRDC Climate Storytelling Fellowship.


The Fellowship will grant $20,000 each to three writers to support revision of a feature screenplay or pilot that engages with climate change in a meaningful way through events, actions, character, emotions, plot, and/or setting.

NRDC will connect each fellowship recipient with the following professionals for feedback and guidance on their scripts:

  • A credited professional screenwriter with an interest in climate storytelling
  • A climate story consultant from NRDC’s Rewrite the Future program to advise on effective approaches to climate storytelling that are entertaining and impactful
  • As applicable, NRDC experts to advise on climate issues highlighted in the script.
  • After receiving these consultations, Fellows have six (6) months to complete a revision of their script
  • At the end of the Fellowship, each recipient will provide a designated representative of the NRDC with a revised version of their script


In order to apply for the fellowship, the script MUST include climate in the story in a meaningful
way that involves major character(s), events and plot or subplot(s). The climate angle should be
more than just a backdrop or setting.

The Program, is subject to the following requirements:

  • The script can be any genre but climate change and solutions must be a main driver of the action
    and affect important choices made by characters.
  • The climate crisis intersects with a wide variety of topics so a successful climate script could
    incorporate impacts and/or solutions in many areas.
  • You must submit an original feature film script or pilot teleplay relating to climate change on
    (Site) for atleast one (1) week during the Program Submission Period and affirmatively opt-in to the Program Submission Call
  • You must be at least 18 years of age and not a minor in the state or country of your residence at
    time of submission.

Selection Process

Writers who meet the submission requirements will be able to opt into consideration via the Black List website until November 30, 2022. Up to 15 writers will be invited, based on the strength of their scripts as determined by the Black List, to submit a one-page personal statement and professional resume. From those submissions, three fellowship recipients will be selected no later than February 15, 2023.
