Los Angeles Chapter Hollywood Seminar Student Filmmaker Scholarship

Priority will be given to currently enrolled undergraduate students who are majoring in Radio-Television-Film (RTF) and are required to complete a film during a semester of the corresponding academic year at the time of applying. Should there not be a qualified applicant under this criteria, secondary consideration should be given to an RTF graduate student who is required to complete a film for their class during a semester of the corresponding academic year at the time of applying. Should no qualified candidates from either of these criteria apply, the chapter can choose to award to an entering freshman from the Los Angeles chapter area, with preference given to RTF majors.

In order to be considered for this scholarship, currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students must:
• Complete the Texas Exes scholarship application, including financial information (financial need is not required but is taken into consideration)
• Complete a supplemental essay (aka “treatment”) describing the film they completed/plan to complete during class
• Submit a working publicly accessible URL that provides a sample(s) of the film. If the student does not have a film to submit, other qualifying media will be considered, such as writing samples, a photography portfolio, podcast, etc.
