The Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship Program submission period is about to open up.

Writers can submit their materials between January 2, 2008 and February 28, 2008.

Note that the following materials will NOT be considered: feature-length screenplays, hour-long dramas, pilots, treatments, outlines, plays, short stories, books, graphics, magazine/newspaper articles, poems, headshots, audio/video tapes, digital media, loose leaf pages or scripts bound in 3-ring binders.

The select up to four people per year for this fellowship. And if you get the fellowship it does last for a year, beginning in October, and it is a salaried fellowship. I could not find any info on the current stipend, but in 2005 it was $33,000.
