AMIA Scholarship Program
AMIA Scholarship Program is designed specifically for students wishing to pursue careers in moving image archiving.
Currently the program awards five annual scholarships:
- the Mary Pickford Scholarship,
- the Sony Pictures Scholarship,
- The Rick Chace Foundation Scholarship,
- the Universal Studios Preservation Scholarship and
- the CFI Sid Solow Scholarship.
These scholarships – each in the amount of $4,000 – are given as financial assistance to students of merit who intend to pursue careers in moving image archiving.
The funds are sent directly to the recipients’ educational institutions to help cover the costs of tuition or registration fees. Students from any country may apply.
Applicants need only submit one application form and one set of supporting documents to be eligible for all four awards; however, no applicant will be awarded more than one scholarship.
To be eligible for these awards, a student:
- must be enrolled FULL TIME in a graduate-level or other advanced program in moving image studies or production, library or information services, archival administration, museum studies or a related discipline; or must be accepted into such a program for the next academic year; and
- must have a grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in his/her most recent academic program.
Important factors in the selection of the scholarshiprecipients include: a student’s commitment to pursuing a career in moving image archiving; the quality of a student’s academic record; and the strength of a student’s program of study as it applies to moving image archiving.
