Dear all,

Please see below for an funded faculty development opportunity (Deadline: 10/23):


The Educational Foundation of the National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) offers two funded faculty development opportunities.  We hope you will distribute this information to your faculty. A flyer is attached.

Our immediate deadline (October 23) is for the 2018 Faculty Fellowship; it allows faculty to attend the annual NATPE Conference and Market in Miami Beach, FL. Faculty with interests in media content, including news and entertainment programming and program development, advertising and promotion, social media developments, marketing or licensing content, implementing technology and content rights issues should consider applying for a fellowship.

NATPE provides hotel accommodation, most meals, registration, NATPE membership and a special faculty-only educational seminar. The online application is available here:
Also, encourage your faculty to plan ahead for a Summer 2018 Faculty Development Grant placement at a TV station, ad agency, production firm or other outlet to sharpen teaching skills. Summer grant recipients receive at least $500 per week during a summer placement at a media firm and travel funding, registration, meals and housing to attend the 2019 NATPE Conference.
