Scholarships and Grants

Home > Federal Financial Aid
Scholarships are private funds that do not have to be repaid. Scholarships can come from a variety of sources -- community groups, corporate donors, or the New York Film Academy; each with its own requirements and application process. They are an excellent resource for students seeking help with the cost of their education, and can help reduce the dependence on loans to cover educational costs. Students are encouraged to search and apply for as many scholarships as possible.

The New York Film Academy is pleased to offer Need Based Tuition Discount to qualifying students. This is a needs based program designed to help reduce the student's cost of education in the New York Film Academy's one-year, two-year, AFA, BFA and MFA programs. To qualify, applicants must show a credible need for Need Based Tuition Discount through documentation (i.e. parents' income tax statement, if dependent; personal income tax, if independent). Additonally, applicants must submit an essay describing accomplishments and justification for consideration of NYFA's Need Based Tuition Discount.
