About the Scholarship

What is the Scholarship?

Our annual Scholarship Competitions invite academically outstanding students to compete for one of our three monetary prizes equal to a combined amount of USD $3,000!

Our purpose is to help students at least a little bit with those annoying costs related to studying, such as books, rent, transport and so on.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are open!

Who can apply?

You can apply for the scholarship if you are a student enrolled in a university or college anywhere in the world. In fact, for the 2021-2022 Scholarship, we had applications from all over the world, including Brazil, Canada, Nigeria, and The Philippines! You can read about our previous winners here.

How to Apply?

This year’s themes are…

  • “My Top Five Animated Movie Voice Overs”
  • “Can AI replace Voice Talent?”
  • “Discuss the growth of film subtitles and video translation”

Past Winners

2021-22 Winner Tristan Agpawa from McMaster University, Canada

“I felt like this little kid jumping up and down. I called my mom right away! I hope to save the prize money for the rainy days, especially during these uncertain times when the prices of basic commodities and goods had been increasing.”

2020-21 Winner Nice Senolan from Marmara University, Turkey

“I thought writing about the impacts of language on people from an international company’s perspective would challenge me to think outside the box while enabling me to have a deeper understanding of some marketing strategies.”

Tristan and Nice talk about entering the scholarship competition and what it feels like to be a winner!
