ASIFA-Hollywood and the Animation Educators Forum (AEF) are now accepting applications for the 2020 Faculty Grant program. The Faculty Grant program is designed to provide support for individuals or groups with reasonable expenditures associated with research, scholarly activity or creative projects in the field of animation. Applications must be submitted online before Sunday. March 1, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Recipients will be announced in April 2020 for the 2020-21 American academic year.
“This past year,” Harvey Deneroff, AEF Steering Committee Chair noted, “we provided funding for various aspects of the production of two animated short films, funded a series of video interviews of animation artists and two archival research projects related to the history of animation. These projects were in line with the Forum’s ongoing commitment to support full-time and adjunct faculty in their independent creative and scholarly work. We look forward to once again getting a wide range of proposals from animation educators from around the world.”
Eligibility for the Faculty Grants is limited to ASIFA-Hollywood’s Animation Educators Forum members. To become an AEF member, simply send an email to email@example.com to request membership, being sure to include your resume or bio as proof of your full time or adjunct faculty status listing some of your experience as an animation educ. There is no cost to become a member.
Expenditures must occur for the American academic year running from 2020 to 2021. Awards will range from US $1,000 to a maximum of US $5,000 per recipient.
