KODAK Student Scholarships

KodakKODAK Student Scholarship Program and Student Cinematography Scholarship Award

http://motion.kodak.com/motion/Education/Scholarships/index.htm

Although we do not feature scholarships that require students to be nominated, we are making an exception today. These two scholarships offer substantial awards and prizes for students pursuing a film degree and several are awarded. Each school can only nominate two students. If you’re a student who meets the eligibility requirements, talk to your professors or your guidance counselor about this award and ask them if they would be willing to nominate you. The links below are to the nomination forms. Click on the link, print the Nomination Form and give it to the person who has agreed to nominate you. Since this is an electronic submission form, you will also need to provide your nominator with the link. The form is so your professor will know what information is required and can ask you for input.

According to KODAK’s website: “Once again there will be a Student Cinematography Scholarship Award, in addition to a Student Scholarship Award. Each award will include a cash tuition prize along with KODAK Film Product grants to assist recipients with future projects. Participating worldwide colleges and universities that offer a degree or diploma program in film, film production, or cinematography may nominate up to two students each year for consideration for the KODAK Student Scholarship Award and one cinematography student each year for consideration for the KODAK Student Cinematography Scholarship Award. The cinematography student nominee may also be nominated for the KODAK Student Scholarship Award.”
