2023 Minority Report (MR), a paid fellowship program for underrepresented student screenwriters that provides:
· A paid stipend of $1,000
· Meetings with managers, agents, and executives from UTA, 3Arts, and more
· Script readings from production companies like A24, Blumhouse, Big Beach, Paramount, and Plan B
· Panels with top writers and directors (previously The Daniels, Chloe Zhao, Barry Jenkins, Shaka King, and more)
· Personalized mentorship from industry leaders
The Minority Report is an industry-vetted fellowship program for the top diverse screenwriters enrolled in undergraduate or graduate educational institutions. Made by students, for students, it’s the first-ever initiative of its kind.
At DIVERSO, we believe that long-term, systemic change in Hollywood starts at the student level: providing underrepresented student groups with exposure, resources, and connections in Hollywood that they may not otherwise have access to.
We offer an extensive professional platform to break into entertainment by connecting our Minority Report Fellows with top companies/executives/mentors and providing individualized guidance and stipend for career development.
Submissions are collected from DIVERSO’s network of 180+ Universities. Each script then goes through an extensive selection process. The top 12 scripts are judged by our Industry Jury members, who ultimately decide on the fellows.
