The Paul Eckstein Memorial Scholarship

June 7, 2023

The Get Lit Film Program is proud to honor the memory and spirit of Paul Eckstein, writer and producer for TV and movies, and a dear friend and supporter of Get Lit. The newly created Paul Eckstein Scholarship Fund will turn donations made in Paul’s name into scholarships and opportunities for young writers. 

When Paul was not creating shows like Godfather of Harlem, he could be found mentoring the next generation of diverse storytellers. Paul believed fiercely in the mission of Get Lit and the power of poetic voices in screenwriting, and the Get Lit Film Program is honored to continue his legacy of mentorship for young artists. 

Thanks to the generous donations of friends, family, and loved ones that have been made in memory of Paul, Get Lit is able to provide young writers with scholarships to the Get Lit Poetic Screenwriters Lab. This yearlong writers’ workshop series will give students the opportunity to  develop feature films, short stories, podcasts and web series, and episodic TV pilot scripts.
