Valued at $5,000, the OUTtv Scholarship recognizes the academic achievement of a full-time graduate student enrolled in the Master of Digital Media program, and their proposed research/project work in digital media exploring the areas of cultural, ethnic or gender-identity diversity in the lesbian/gay/bi/trans (LGBT) community. Preference will be given to applicants who are self-identified as gay, lesbian, bi, or trans. Should no student from the LGBT community apply for this award, the OUTtv Award may be given to an applicant who meets the remaining criteria.
Students can either apply for this award, or be nominated by faculty, staff or students of the Great Northern Way Campus community. Eligible students must demonstrate overall excellence in their academic and creative work and be in good academic standing in the Master of Digital Media Program. Students must submit a proposal, or have completed a project that explores areas in digital media related to the cultural, ethnic or gender-identity diversity of the gay/lesbian/trans/bi community (proposal or project description should not exceed 250 words).
