Cosby funds USC program

Bill and Camille Cosby have made a grant to USC to fund a new screenwriting program for African-American writers that will be named after Camille’s father, Guy Alexander Hanks.

The tuition-free program will kick off with a 15-week workshop for up to 15 outstanding writers interested in taking a film or TV script to completion.

The workshop will meet two evenings a week, starting in March 1994. Those who complete the workshop will be eligible for scholarship funds to attend the USC School of Cinema-Television.

Applications must be mailed no later than Jan. 9, or submitted in person by Jan. 14. Applicants must be at 18 years of age and may not be enrolled in a university, college or community college in a film/TV program.
