Four $2,500 scholarships will be awarded, one per category, for the following categories: Screenwriting, Directing, Cinematography, and Editing.
Students must guarantee that they were the sole performer of the selected category while creating their films. This does not mean the film had to me made by the student alone, only that the task stipulated by category was carried out by the student. An instructor or advisor who has had some type of involvement or knowledge of the specific project must sign to verify the student involvement is as stated.
Scholarships will be awarded to the students institutions of choice, regardless of planned major. The student need not be majoring in a media related field to receive and utilize the scholarship. Violation of the declaration of student work as authentic will result in forfeiture of the scholarship application.
AETN and the THEA Foundation retain the right to use student media entered in the scholarship proceedings in the same manner as the non-competitive Student Selects media (online webcast, broadcast and film festival showings.)
The scholarship program is inclusive. There are no test score requirements, grade point Requirements, or major requirements (scholarship winners go on to major in their field of choice).
