The Kozakov Foundation aims to create a diverse, inclusive, and accessible pathway to a career in storytelling: acting, directing, producing, and screenwriting for movies, television, and theater. We deploy scholarships, grants, resources, and fellowships to ensure our history, stories, and culture are communicated authentically and meaningfully.
The Kozakov Foundation Arts Fellowship is designed to aid a student with university tuition to pursue a career in film, theatre, or television. We know that taking on a creative career path can be a challenging pursuit and we hope that this fellowship will help you make your decision based on passion and not financial limitations or considerations.
To be considered for the scholarship, you must be studying at a film or theatre focused university/college or majoring in a film/theatre major at a non-film or theatre-focused university/college. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate passion and/or are an underrepresented minority student.
You must be granted enrollment into an undergraduate or graduate university.
To apply, please submit an essay or video to tell us a bit about yourself and why you believe that pursuing a creative degree will help make a positive impact on the world. Please also feel free to submit some work from your portfolio.
