Academy Film Scholars Program
To stimulate and support new and significant works of film scholarship, the Academy Film Scholars program awards grants of $25,000 to two individuals each year.
Established scholars, writers and historians are awarded grants to research topics that may include cultural, educational, historical, theoretical or scientific aspects of theatrical motion pictures.
A ceremony is held each year to honor the selected Scholars, and each Scholar presents his or her projects or findings in a lecture at the Academy following the completion of their work.
