$25,000 Grant for Films and Scripts About Science and Technology


The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation will award one participant of Film Independent’s Producers Lab the annual Sloan Producers Grant. The recipient will receive a $25,000 development grant, admission to Film Independent’s Producers Lab, and year-round support from Film Independent.

The grant is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, which seeks to create and develop new scripts and films about science and technology and to see them into commercial production with national and international distribution. It has screenplay development programs with the Tribeca, Sundance, and Hamptons Film Festivals, as well as other select independent partners and film schools.

To apply for the Sloan Producers Grant, the filmmaker must apply to the Producers Lab and indicate in their letter that they wish to be considered for the Sloan Grant. To be eligible for the Sloan grant the applicant must be attached as producer and possess the rights to the script with which they are applying. The screenplay should have a scientific, mathematical, and/ or technological theme and storyline or have a leading character who is a scientist, engineer, or mathematician.

Documentaries are not eligible for the Sloan Producers Grant.
