How old do I have to be to apply?
Impact applicants must be a minimum of 18 years old.
Can I apply from outside of the United States?
Yes, Impact encourages applicants to apply internationally.
Do I have to move to Los Angeles?
Yes, you must spend the designated length of your Impact program in Los Angeles. We have future plans to expand Impact to international hubs and virtual programs but those participating in current programs must move to Los Angeles for the duration of the program.
Do applicants for Imagine Impact have to have work authorization in the U.S. to be eligible?
Applicants accepted into the program are given a stipend, not wages, therefore we do not require I-9 clearance nor proof of the right to work in the USA. However, those selected will need a U.S. Federal ID# in order to be issued a 1099 for tax purposes.
How do I get in?

Can I apply as a team?
Yes, we encourage creative teams to apply together. The application has room for the contact information for two writers, and you can list any other individuals who are attached to the project, as well. Please note, however, you cannot apply as both a team and an individual. You must choose one.
