In 2003 the Trustees approved awarding student assistance awards to students in need of financial assistance who are enrolled in full time studies. Each year the Trustees receive hundreds of applications from qualifying students requesting support for their studies. Students are asked to answer a number of questions in detail and provide an essay with a minimun word count telling the judges about themselves and explain how the assitance money would benefit them, and how their life and education will benefit society.  The majority of the students who apply work in movie theatres across Canada.

Applications are accepted each year from eligible students who are 30 years or younger, enrolled in full-time post-secondary education and who currently works or has worked in the film industry for a minimum of 1 year, within the past 6 months, or you have a parent/grandparent who currently works or did work in the film industry for a minimum of 3 years, within the past 6 months (or is a retiree with 5 years of industry employment prior to retirement )are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
