Scholarship Fund

The NYWIFT Scholarship Fund was established in 1995. NYWIFT provides scholarships each year to a second-year female film student at the Brooklyn College Feirstein School of Cinema, City College of New York, Columbia University, New York University, and the Stony Brook/Killer Films MFA in Film program. Prizes are also given to two undergraduate students from Hunter College and Brooklyn College.

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.
