Robert Redford sponsors Santa Fe U. scholarships

Film school grant promotes indigenous voices

Santa Fe University of Art and Design and its fast-growing film school have announced the Robert Redford/Milagro Initiative Scholarship program.

The Unique Voice scholarship will fully fund a film school scholarship for a student that represents the voice of indigenous people from anywhere in the world, while Emerging Artist scholarships will be awarded to students in disciplines including art, music, film and photography.

Film school topper and helmer Chris Eyre said “Redford believes in all the arts. He’s always paying it forward.”

The university will fund the grants, while Redford will help select scholarship recipients together with the Milagro Initiative for Native American and Hispanic filmmakers, headed by Kathleen Broyles.

The university’s film school currently enrolls 150 students, and Eyre is expecting the number to grow by 50% in the next year. “Something speaks to people about this place,” said Eyre of the university’s New Mexico setting. “It gives you space to create.”
