In 1998, IATSE Local 891 created a scholarship program to assist members and their dependents to pursue degree granting post-secondary studies. The scholarships are awarded primarily on academic achievement with significant consideration given to additional achievements and merits.
Five scholarships of $5,000 each are awarded to members in good standing or their eligible dependents (see the application form for a definition of eligible dependent) enrolled full time in pursuit of a degree which relates to film, media, theatre, or fine arts, at any Canadian or international accredited post-secondary institution.
Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year are now open. Interested applicants can view and download our Scholarship Application Package.
IATSE International offers two annual scholarships funded by the Richard F. Walsh/Alfred W. Di Tolla/Harold P. Spivak Foundation of $1,750 per year for four years. The scholarships are open to the sons and daughters of members in good standing and who are high school seniors at the time of application. The deadline is December 31.
