Grants to promote film education in the United States. The goals of the Foundation are to advance the art and science of motion pictures and to foster cooperation among the creative leaders of the motion picture industry for cultural, educational, and technical progress. The purpose of this funding is to support a wide range of programs that seek to fulfill the aforementioned goals. The Foundation seeks to fund the following programs:

Craft Workshops and Conferences - in which college students and/or adults are trained in one or more of the various craft fields of film production (e.g., directing, cinematography, screenwriting, editing, etc.).
Library and Archival Projects - in which the papers of filmmakers are preserved and/or made available to the public.
Screening Programs - especially those in which filmmakers interact with audiences.
Seminar Programs - in which film professionals discuss their work and/or particular aspects of the creation and distribution of films.
Teacher Training Programs - in which production techniques and/or film appreciation information (in the broadest sense) is presented for teachers to take back to their classrooms.
Training/Bridge Programs - in which college students and/or adults are trained for and then placed in film industry jobs. This includes mentoring programs.
