TV Acad's scholarship disburses $10,000

USC students led the College Television Awards on April 11 nabbing six kudos, Brigham Young was next with four and UC Berkeley and Chapman U. took three each.

Awards were doled out for the best work in in video, digital production and film production by undergraduate and graduate students at Academy’s Leonard H. Goldenson Theater. First place winners received $2,000, second place $1,000 and third $500. Selected winners get to pitch their projects and meet with a showbiz mentor, while some pieces will be seen on mtvU.com.

Nathan Lee of Brigham Young received the directing award for his work on “Inspector 42,” while the Seymour Bricker Family Humanitarian Award went to Gregg Helvey of USC for his work on “Kavi,” an Oscar-nominated short.

The inaugural Loreen Arbus Focus on Disability Scholarships went to Chapman’s Rhianon Gutierrez for her film “When I’m Not Alone” and George Washington U.’s Haley Lesavoy for her piece “Opening Doors & Minds: Celebrating 20 Years of the ADA.”
