The Academy’s Educational Grants Committee believes that industry internships are an important gateway for dedicated and talented students who have a drive to realize their dreams. These internships should create pathways for students by providing an educational environment that creates opportunities, provides exposure and encourages mentorship, regardless of the students’ financial means. To this end, the Internship Grants Program provides assistance to qualified but financially challenged students who might not otherwise be able to participate in a motion picture industry internship.
In 2013, the program distributed $175,000 to 22 institutions.
