The NYWIFT Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 to provide financial assistance to women second-year graduate film students at the Brooklyn College Steinhardt School, Brooklyn College Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, City College of New York, Columbia University, New York University, and SUNY Stony Brook/Killer Films MFA, and to a graduating senior at School of Visual Arts. Students are nominated by faculty at their respective institutions. For more information, contact the film department at each school.
The Sabrina Wright-Gilliar Award honors the memory of the legendary prop master Wright-Gilliar and is given to a female high school senior graduating from the Academy for Careers in Television and Film (TvF) in Queens, NY.
