Funding for Film Internships 2014

Hampshire College has two grants available to support students doing film and video internships.

1. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Internship Grant: Two awards of $5000 each
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Internship Grant supports two students doing internships with employers focused on theatrical motion picture production. Two students are awarded $5000 each to support fully their internship experience. At least half of the grant funding must be awarded to students from groups underrepresented in the motion picture industry, which includes women, people of color, and other minority groups. Internships related to all aspects of film or video production intended for the big screen (including animation, narrative, and documentary film) are eligible. Internships focused on television or the Internet, or on producing film festivals are not eligible. Students must commit to at least 200 hours at the internship.

DEADLINE EXTNEDED TO FRIDAY, APRIL 18TH, 2014, AT 12:00 NOON!!!

IMPORTANT: Students with high financial need doing internships with Hampshire alums, please apply ASAP.  If your ability to do the internship is contingent upon funding, we will do our best to notify you early.

Who is eligible?

In order to be considered for either grant, you must:

1. Be a current Hampshire student in good academic and disciplinary standing.
2. Be returning to Hampshire upon completion of the internship (graduating students and students taking a non-academic leave are not eligible).
3. Have a letter from an internship supervisor verifying that you have been offered an eligible internship.

Priority will be given to students who are doing eligible internships with Hampshire alums through the Entertainment Industry Internship Program, and who can demonstrate financial need; however, students doing other internships will also be considered.
