The Kat Montagu Screenwriting Scholarship will be awarded to a new student in the VFS Writing for Film & Television program. The $2,500 award will be put toward the scholarship winner’s tuition costs. The 2013 Scholarship is open to all incoming students registered in the Writing for Film & Television Class 42 (starting January 2, 2013), provided they have not previously taken any professional program at Vancouver Film School, have an undergraduate or graduate degree, and can provide a reference letter and one page of script. Scholarships will be awarded based on the selection criteria outlined for this scholarship, and the applicant must meet all admissions requirements. The judging committee will consist of faculty and representatives from VFS, as well as scholarship providers. The decision of the judging committee is final.
