Universal Studios Launches Screenwriters Fellowship

I came across this post on LitReactor and thought some of you might be interested in it. I'm not much of a writer (otherwise I'd apply for it myself)...but Universal Studios is launching a year long screenwriting training program called the Emerging Writers Fellowship.
"Emerging writers who are chosen to participate in the program will work exclusively with the studio over the course of a year to hone their skills. During this program, fellows will be given the opportunity to work on current Universal projects as well as pitch original story ideas. Fellows will also attend workshops, receive mentoring, interact with top literary agents and sit in on Universal’s executive meetings. Fellows admitted into the program will be hired under a writing service agreement and must be committed to working full-time for one year."
Apparently they're only going to allow 500 people to apply and they're only going to choose 5 for the program. The application won't be released until September 3, 2013. 

Check out LitReactor for more information. If any of you guys apply, good luck! =)
