Each year, using money earned at our annual film festival and other fundraising activities, it is our goal to award $1,000 scholarships ($500 per semester for two semesters) to a number of film students at Stephen F. Austin State University. The exact number of scholarships awarded each year will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Nacogdoches Art Alliance, dependent upon money available as of April 1 of each year.

An important part of our mission is to help develop and nurture the future of film making in all media platforms. Providing learning opportunities for young and budding filmmakers is at the core of who were are and what we do.
