Kodak’s Student Scholarship Program is officially open and calling for all student entries through May 15, 2015. The company is offering two scholarships this year: the Student Scholarship Award, where applicants will be judged on professional filmmaking potential, academic excellence and the overall quality of the work submitted, with particular attention to expression, interpretation and construction of the visual image, and the Student Cinematography Scholarship Award, in which nominees will be evaluated solely on the quality of their cinematography skills. A world-renowned cinematographer will judge the final selection of the latter category.
According to Kodak, each award will include a cash tuition prize along with Kodak Film Product grants to assist recipients with future projects. Participating worldwide colleges and universities that offer a degree or diploma program in film, film production, or cinematography may nominate up to two students each year for consideration for the Student Scholarship Award and one cinematography student each year for consideration for the Student Cinematography Scholarship Award. The cinematography student nominee may also be nominated for the Student Scholarship Award.
