The Los Angeles Film Critics Association is happy to offer scholarships for aspiring film critics with the generous support of Rotten Tomatoes.
This year we will award two $3,000 scholarships to students enrolled at Los Angeles-area community colleges: one to a woman and another to a person from an underrepresented group or groups.
Applicants should email the following materials to LAFCAscholarship@gmail.com by Dec. 31, 2020:
- a cover letter including:
- a description of their experience and/or aspirations in film criticism as a woman or person from an underrepresented group
- their school, year, and area of study
- three writing samples such as a movie review written for the school paper, a paper for a film studies class, a personal blog post, etc.
Each recipient will receive a $3,000 award, as well as Fandango and FandangoNOW gift cards. LAFCA will not be holding an in-person awards dinner this season, but this year’s scholarship winners will be invited to attend the event in the future.
Feel free to email LAFCAscholarship@gmail.com with any questions or comments. We look forward to reading the applications!
