The Latino Scholarship Fund (LSF) opens the doors of the AFI Conservatory to gifted, aspiring filmmakers from the Latino community. Created in partnership with the Latino Donor Collaborative, the LSF represents AFI's commitment to equality in film and television, preparing promising Latino storytellers for careers in the motion picture arts.

The program was established through a challenge grant from the Latino Donor Collaborative. All U.S. citizens or permanent residents of Latino descent actively enrolled at AFI are eligible to apply for support.

Scholarships through the LSF are awarded by the AFI Conservatory. Only those currently enrolled or accepted to attend the AFI Conservatory are eligible for these scholarships.

Please do not contact the LDC directly for scholarship information.
