Calling all aspiring screenwriters! The Kat Montagu Screenwriting Scholarship is a $2,500 award that will be offered to a new student in the VFS Writing for Film & Television program.
The scholarship is named in honour of Kat Montagu, an instructor with the Writing department. Kat is a previous winner of the department’s Excellence in Teaching Award. She is an accomplished screenwriter, with numerous screenplays, TV pilots, magazine articles, and short films under her belt.
The 2013 Scholarship is open to all incoming students registered in the Writing for Film & Television Class 42 (starting January 2, 2013), provided they have not previously taken any professional program at Vancouver Film School, have an undergraduate or graduate degree, and can provide a reference letter and one page of script.
Updated: The deadline to apply for the Kat Montagu Scholarship has now passed. You can still speak with an advisor to learn more about the Writing for Film & Television program.
