The Jump Cutters Production Fellowship


The Jump Cutters Production Fellowship is made possible thanks to a generous donation to the UCSD Department of Communication by Alumni Todd and Katherine Lehr.

Fellowships are for Communication (junior/senior) students who have demonstrated potential in production, and have a future project in mind (including, but not limited to, a film, podcast, or photography project). Awards may range between $500 - $3,000, and can be used to cover the cost of a specific camera, a software package, or other creative use.

2022 Fellowship Application: LINK

Deadline: The 2022 application deadline has now passed. The deadline for 2023 applications will be posted soon. 

Applications will be reviewed by the Jump Cutters Production Fellowship Committee, with awards to be announced by the end of Spring Quarter 2022.

Fellowship recipients will be required to submit their final production project (to be completed within one year) to the Department of Communication, which will be published on the department's website. Recipients may also be asked to publicly screen, play or exhibit their work at a departmental event.
