Video Contest Scholarships

Are you an aspiring director or an up-and-coming YouTube star? Even if you are simply fascinated by movies and the process of making them, and have some spare time and access to recording equipment, your interest in film and video could help you pay for school.

From film major scholarships to video blogging contests, there are numerous ways to make earn money for your talents. Regardless of the nature of your interest in film and video, there is bound to be at least one scholarship video contest that’s right for you. Along with colleges and employers, scholarship providers are embracing new technologies and the people who master them to create engaging and compelling videos. Some scholarship video contests may require a promotional video for a product, or a public service announcement. Others will reward you for pursuing your own creative efforts.

Like a scholarship essay, a scholarship video will take time and effort to create. Take time and diligence in your creation by understanding the assigned task and spend a considerable amount of time both drafting and editing. For more tips on winning a video scholarship check out our Top 10 tips for directing a scholarship-worthy video. Unlike a scholarship essay, it may be difficult to reuse a scholarship video for another award; but also unlike most essays, a good scholarship video may make a valuable addition to your portfolio if you choose to pursue film professionally.

Finding Video Scholarships

Scholarship video contests are increasingly popular and are offered by a variety of organizations. To give you an idea of what’s out there, we’ve included a few examples of scholarship video contests here. For more scholarship opportunities, complete a free scholarship search on Scholarships.com.
