In 2023, Podia is giving away creator fellowships (and thousands of dollars in prizes) every single month

Are you the next Podia Creator Fellowship winner? You have the chance to win fellowship funds and prizes to help your ideas come to life.

Last year over 2,000 people applied to win thousands of dollars in creator fellowships. After seeing your excitement and hearing the stories of fellowship winners, we decided that this year is the year to give even more — which is why there will be new chances to win a creator fellowship in every month of 2023.

Creating is hard, but what if you had a little extra funding to make it easier? What if you could get access to the resources you need, or the training that will help you grow?

This page is your home base for info on each fellowship. (And stay tuned! There will be new prizes and new ways to enter every month.)

June: Win $2,000 and be one of the first to test Podia’s new email features, sponsored by incard

Podia Email is getting a huge overhaul — including a full visual email designer, pre-made templates, segmentation, automated tagging, and new automated campaign triggers. When these new features launch, Podia will be able to do everything you can do in other email platforms (plus a few other tricks), so that you can run your entire business in one place.

But before these features launch to everyone, we’re going to get feedback from a small group of beta users. Trusting your business to an email platform is a big deal. Testing things out in advance will help us filter out any bugs and give you a chance to provide feedback on the features you need to do your best work.

That’s why this month’s fellowship application is a short survey about how you use email in your business — and a chance (if you want!) to become a beta user of Podia Email, so you can see how things work for yourself.

  • To enter, complete a quick survey about how you use email.
  • We’ll pull a fresh batch of beta testers from the list of applicants each week.
  • Beta testers will receive early access to the new email features and the opportunity to share feedback with the Podia team.
  • One lucky entrant will win the $2,000 grand prize, sponsored by incard.

The fine print

All the details you need to know for your application

  • It’s possible to run your online business on a budget, but a little extra funding can open up a world of opportunities.

    That’s why we’re giving away $2,000 to one Podia creator so they can take their business to the next level.

    The fellowship is open to creators at any stage in their journey. Whether you’re just starting out or building the next phase of your online empire, we encourage you to apply.

    Application deadline: June 8th, 2023 at 11:59 pm ET.

  • The fellowship grand prize winner will receive a one-time monetary reward of $2,000 USD which can be used for building their business.

  • To apply, you must meet the following requirements:

    ✅ You complete the application at this link.
    ✅ You have a free or paid Podia account. Don’t have an account? Sign up for free here.
    ✅ You applied before the June 8th, 2023 at 11:59 pm ET deadline.
    ✅ You’re willing to be featured on Podia in case studies and in marketing materials.

    You can read the full terms and conditions for the Podia Creator Fellowship here.

  • How you spend the money is entirely up to you. Use the money for anything that helps you as a creator to build your business and grow as a creator.

    For our first-ever fellowship, we asked applicants how they’d spend the prize money if they won. 43% of creators wanted to bring in outside help — including hiring freelancers, virtual assistants, consultants, social media managers, graphic designers, photographers, and more.

    The winner of the first Podia Creator Fellowship, Valeria Hernández, used the prize money to hire a virtual assistant. Valeria still works a 9-to-5, in addition to her coaching business, so her virtual assistant helps with behind-the-scenes tasks and an exciting new project: Valeria’s first online course.

    Here are some additional ideas for how you could spend the $2,000:

    • Invest in new branding or a website redesign
    • Buy new camera gear or podcasting equipment
    • Upgrade your software and technology suite
    • Invest in courses, conferences, and summits to advance your education
    • Create scholarships for your programs
  • There isn’t one! We want you to succeed, and we all know that extra cash can be a gamechanger for hardworking creators like you.

    If you win, we will highlight your creator journey and share how you used the funding so that others can learn from you. You’ll be featured on Podia, as well as in educational and marketing materials in our community and beyond.

    (Basically, we plan to get your name out there. Talk about a win-win.)
