East Rock Films is an educational organization that seeks to inform and inspire viewers by bringing to life famous writers, artists, and their works.

Please describe someone from the past who especially inspires you – this person could be a writer, artist, scientist, activist, journalist, political leader, entrepreneur, or inventor, to name a few examples, and could be from any country. Your subject could have lived in the distant or recent past but is no longer living.
To be eligible, you must be a junior or senior in high school, or a freshman or sophomore at an accredited college, community college, or university in the U.S. or Canada. Topics may vary each year.

Your intended area of study or co-study should be in the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences. You must agree to use the award money toward educational expenses, such as tuition, fees, books, applying to schools, etc.
