Warner Bros. Studios has created a new, annual animation scholarship in honor of the late Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and the great animation legacy of both Hanna-Barbera Studios and Warner Bros. Animation.
The Warner Bros. Hanna-Barbera Animation Scholarship will be awarded annually to a graduating high school senior enrolling in a college, university or trade school to study animation. The $10,000 cash scholarship will be disbursed annually in equal amounts over the course of enrollment. Applicants will be evaluated on a number of criteria, including their passion and talent for a career in animation and demonstrated financial need. A minimum GPA of 3.0 upon graduation is required.
In addition to the annual disbursement, the scholarship winner will be offered four consecutive, paid summer internships at WB Animation in Burbank while in college.
Applicants must complete the Warner Bros. Hanna-Barbera Animation Scholarship application and return it along with support materials no later than 5:00 pm on April 11, 2007. Short-listed applicants may be asked to complete a short interview. The winner will be notified in early May.
