Photography and Film Scholarships and Internships

Find scholarships to help financially back your passion.

Do you have the photography bug? On the other hand, perhaps, moving pictures are your passion. Do you love shooting at every angle and capturing every moment?

If you answered yes, then keep reading because these scholarships are seriously right up your alley!

Whether you’re interested in photography or film-making as a hobby or seriously taking it on as a part of your career, you might want to look into the world of photography and cinematography scholarships.

As you probably already know, being a great photographer takes more than just a great photo – it takes great photographers years of study to develop the skill set to create seemingly perfect shots.

The same goes for the art of film-making – those shots don’t create themselves! Someone is behind the camera, creating every angle and capturing every moment.

With photography or film-making scholarships, you’ll have the unique opportunity to pursue your passion and, ultimately, become a professional in the field if that’s what you decide you’d like to do.

Fastweb’s database is loaded with opportunities for students looking for photography and film scholarships and is ready to help link you with opportunities to fulfill your dreams.
