The Next Century Fund – Centennial Campaign
In celebration of its Centennial, SMPTE has established The Next Century Fund to support programs and services that directly support the growth of industry and its members. These funds will support initiatives within Standards Development, Membership Development and Education.
Student Membership Challenge
SMPTE needs to attract students to membership to help us grow – and we need the best and brightest in our industry. One of the best ways to do this is to educate college and university students in technical fields about our industry through their membership in SMPTE. Pay for a student today – gain a great colleague tomorrow! $10 pays for one student!
The Louis F. Wolf Memorial Scholarship
The Louis F. Wolf Memorial Scholarship is designed to help students further their undergraduate or graduate studies in motion pictures and television, with an emphasis on technology. Students are selected through a rigorous application process. Awards are paid to the accredited educational institution the scholarship winner is attending.
Moving Images Documentary
The SMPTE documentary MOVING IMAGES will explore the excitement surrounding the development of motion imaging technology from turn of the twentieth century through the present while inquiring about what the future has in store. Through interviews with top filmmakers, historians, entrepreneurs, and engineers, the documentary will investigate the influence that art and science have on each other.
SMPTE Education Fund
Provides funds and/or recognition through scholarships, academic and professional development grants, educational travel grants, and internship programs.
