Today we’re announcing the next generation of the Substack Fellowship for Independent Writers, which features a $100,000 grant for the top recipient and advances of $25,000 each for four other fellows.
This is really exciting. I've had an idea that I've been toying with that's perfect I think for the newsletter format but I haven't been sure where to best get funding. Thanks!
Can you apply as a team or does it have to be individuals?
Do you need a current Substack newsletter to apply?
Hi Fiona! We currently run a podcast and have a newsletter with 2000 subscribers. We are thinking about moving our podcast into Substack and ultimately move towards paid subscribers by offering exclusive content. Could we apply to this fellowship with a podcast?
Hi! Not to be THAT person, and with the internet so taxed these days, I need to ask: once we submit our application via Docs, is there a way we can be 100% it was received? I did see "Thank you for applying", I'm sorry to ask, and thank you!
Can you apply If your newsletter is in spanish? If so, should I provide English translations of the texts submitted in the application?
This is a good step certainly but really the headlines mentioning 25k are misleading. An advance on a successful newsletter will quickly recoup Substack’s investment. So it’s really just $3k (which is great) but if Substack really wants to help authors why not offer more than 4? Since Substack is collecting such high fees + there is a good chance of getting their full $25k advance, why not use this to include more authors?
Great to see this amazing idea come to fruition!

I just found out and missed the deadline at the same time.
Thank you for providing this opportunity!
Does the submission need to be a newsletter or can it be a blog? I know the deadline was yesterday, just asking in case you do this again in 2021. Thanks!
Such an amazing opportunity! Unfortunate that I couldn’t get time off during this busy work period - I hope there will be more fellowships later down the line. Good luck to all of the applicants :)
Is the fellowship program valid for Hindi language too?
