Description:The Fledgling Fund supports outreach and engagement for social issue documentary film and other storytelling projects that have the potential to inspire social change around issues that affect the most vulnerable. Fledgling looks for projects that both spotlight problems and offer solutions in areas of interest, such as equality, democracy, environment, economic justice, education, health system reform, human rights, women and girls, and justice reform. The Fledgling Fund awards grants to media projects in one or more of the following: audience engagement planning grants or audience engagement implementation grants.

Although the Fledgling Fund does not specify age or grade limits, its grantees have gone on to win prestigious awards, including the Oscar and Emmy for outstanding documentaries and programming. Serious students of creative media and viable projects are the Fledgling Fundís focus.
