Student Academy Awards Competition
Student Academy Awards Competition is a national student film competition for college students studying film or film-related fields of study. Eligible participants must be full-time students enrolled in an accredited college or university in the U.S.

Students may enter the film competition by creating an original film in one of four categories: Animation, Documentary, Narrative and Alternative. Entries must be submitted on DVD-R format and be film work that is part of college curriculum. Film students from outside the U.S. are also honored each year.

The presentation ceremony is held every year at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Hollywood, California. Gold, silver and bronze awards are given, each with a cash prize.

The awards are sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since 1973, the Academy has been recognizing the works of student filmmakers across the country. Many past winners have gone on to become famous and successful film writers and directors, such as John Lasseter and Spike Lee.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,000 - $5,000.
