Emerging Content Creators Scholarship Opportunity - 2020 NALIP Media Summit
May 27, 2020
We hope you are doing well and staying safe during this trying time. We are reaching out to you today to invite your filmmaking students to apply for an exclusive opportunity to receive an Emerging Content Creators Inclusion Initiative (ECCII) Scholarship for this year's 2020 NALIP Media Summit. This scholarship is open to all graduate and undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers in the entertainment industry, as well as recent graduates looking to get started in the workforce, no matter their background or skill level.
For the first time ever, the NALIP Media Summit will be completely virtual; therefore, creators across the country will have access to this exciting opportunity! Scholarship recipients will be able to attend the entire six-day conference, completely free of charge. For the last twenty-one years the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) has been dedicated to facilitating the advancement and engagement of Latinx creators across multiple media platforms. Through our events and programs we aim to amplify Latinx content creators and connect them to resources, information, and experts in order to change the narrative and impact the number of Latinx people behind and in front of the camera. Our NALIP Media Summit will celebrate U.S. based Latinx achievement across all media platforms: narrative shorts, TV/streaming pilots, digital web series, virtual reality, augmented reality, documentary shorts, and more. We will celebrate the fusion of storytelling, technology, and media, championing Latinx talent.
Attendees will choose a focus within the entertainment industry, and will then be invited to participate in an exclusive workshop, consisting of a panel of experts in the chosen field. They will also receive access to the many other workshops and sessions taking place during the six-day conference. As part of the scholarship, recipients must make themselves available for the entirety of the Virtual NALIP Media Summit (June 25th - June 30th).
We hope you are able to pass this opportunity on to any students you think would be interested in applying.
Please have interested applicants apply here by May 29, 2020.
We will be choosing the scholarship recipients and notifying them by June 10th.
