BPM Fellowship Program


Aim and Benefits of BPM Fellowship Program

  • A $7,500 honorarium after the first 30 days of the fellowship. This payment is dependent on completion of all MIT and Black Public Media contracts and agreements. Payments may be made to individuals only, not to their companies.
  • Access to MIT’s community of artists, scholars, and technologists.
  • Access to Black Public Media’s community of Black filmmakers and creative technologists.
  • Ability to audit one (1) MIT course [requires permission of the instructor]. If a Fellow wants to audit an MIT class, they should choose the course as soon as they are selected, because classes begin on the September 8.
  • Access to MIT’s library system and other online resources.
  • Receive a potential showcase of the maker and/or the maker’s project at a Black Public Media event. If the prototype or finished production were an augmented reality app, a VR experience, or an AI app, for example, BPM could help drive traffic to the maker’s project or help recommend exhibition opportunities. Black Public Media has screened AR/VR experiences for more than 650 people since 2018. Introducing the world of spatial computing and other emerging storytelling technologies to Black creatives is a major focus of the BPMplus Program.
