Sloan pledges grants to NYU

Awards to be given 20 students over 3 years

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has pledged $520,000 in film production grants to the Tisch School of the Arts’ Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU.

Grant coin will cascade into two awards of $100,000, six $15,000 prizes, and 12 $7,500 prizes to be given over the next three years to young filmmakers working in themes of science and technology. The balance will support the program’s organizational costs.

The Tisch School is the first of the nation’s film programs to receive the $100,000 awards, for which only feature-length film projects will be eligible.
