Acad deadline set for scholar grants

Winners determined by evaluating propostions for new project

Applications for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ newly established Academy Film Scholars program are due Sept. 15.

Two selected scholars will each receive $25,000 in funding for their proposed projects, pitched during the application process.

Grants are not available to students; only established scholars, writers, historians and researchers with a significant record of achievement may apply.

Program was set up in April by the Grants Committee of the Academy Foundation to “stimulate and support the creation of new, innovative and significant works of film scholarship about aesthetic, cultural, educational, historical, theoretical or scientific aspects of theatrical motion pictures.”

Applicants must propose a new work of film scholarship encompassing some aspect of theatrical motion picture art, science, commerce, history or theory. Works solely exploring television, video or other media arts themes are not eligible.

Proposed projects may be for books, multimedia presentations, curatorial projects, electronic discs or Internet sites, and must be in English. Proposals for the creation of films, television programming or videos are not eligible.
