The AFI Conservatory offers scholarship support to incoming and current Fellows. Scholarships are awarded based on both financial need and demonstrated alent, and range from $2,500 up to full tuition. Several scholarships are available for Fellows from underrepresented communities, specific nationalities and Conservatory disciplines.
Scholarships awarded to first-year Fellows are renewable in the second year provided the recipient maintains satisfactory academic progress. To apply for AFI Scholarship funds, a prospective Fellow must submit the AFI Conservatory scholarship application during the admissions process. Download and complete the pdf application, submit the required essay(s) and upload your document in pdf format within the online application.
Scholarship selection is determined by the AFI Conservatory Scholarship Committee with advisement from select scholarship donors on a case-by-case basis.
