NONSO CHRISTIAN UGBODE FELLOWSHIP
Nonso Christian Ugbode Fellowship
For ten years, Nonso Christian Ugbode served as Director of Digital Initiatives here at Black Public Media. His vision and contribution were especially felt through his efforts to cultivate and prepare Black producers for work in digital and emerging media.
In 2016, in honor of his memory, we founded the Nonso Christian Ugbode Digital Media Fellowship. The NCU Digital Media Fellowship is designed specifically for young artists who are producing their first independent digital media project.
UP TO $5,000
BPM provides each fellow with a mentor, production resources, up to $5,000 in funding, and distribution once the work is complete. We are excited to invite you to join us in continuing Christian’s legacy. This fellowship is something we know he would be proud of and BPM looks forward to watching it flourish.
