The AFI Conservatory offers a limited number of scholarships each year to both domestic and international incoming Fellows. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and merit. Amounts range from $5,000 up to full tuition. Several scholarships are available for Fellows from underrepresented communities, specific nationalities and Conservatory disciplines.
The AFI Conservatory is a need-blind institution. Scholarship or financial need is not taken into consideration during the admissions process and would never be used in hindrance to an applicant’s admissions decision. Scholarships awarded to first-year Fellows are renewable in the second year provided the recipient maintains satisfactory academic progress and good standing at the Conservatory. Scholarship selection is determined by the AFI Conservatory Scholarship Committee with advisement from scholarship donors on a case-by-case basis.
