POV Scholarship Application

Improving Access to FAVA Programming

Improving Access to FAVA Programming

The Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA) is offering film study scholarships to improve access.

Many people have talents that go unrecognized or under-utilized. Barriers to inclusion such as socio-economic status, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion are varied and sometimes keep people from participating in and contributing to the arts.
If structural barriers and circumstances like these are preventing you from pursuing your filmmaking aspirations, FAVA’s POV Scholarship program might be a resource for you.
Scholarship includes:
  • a free one-year FAVA membership
  • tuition fees for one of FAVA’s media arts programs
Upcoming classes & deadlines:
  • Intermediate Screenwriting Deadline is July 31st at Noon
  • Fall Video Kitchen Deadline is August 1st at Noon


    Selection Process

    FAVA is able to accommodate one P.O.V. Scholarship in each of our classes. Applicants will be evaluated and a candidate will be selected based on their answers to the above form. Successful applicants will be contacted two to three weeks prior to the start date of the class to confirm their enrolment. If the successful applicant does not want the spot, another applicant will be selected.

    FAVA classes are subject to cancellation if they do not meet minimum enrolment. If a preferred class is cancelled, successful applicants will be given the option of registering in a future class.

    If you have any questions about the P.O.V. Scholarship, please contact FAVA’s Programming Manager.
