The Educational Grants Program provides support to institutions and other nonprofit organizations that help aspiring filmmakers gain the skills and knowledge they need to make theatrical motion pictures.
In 2012 the program, then called the Institutional Grants Program, distributed $325,000 to 61 film-related nonprofit organizations, including universities, museums and career development programs.
