Bursaries & Awards

CFC Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards

Through the generosity of donors and partners, the CFC offers financial assistance through full or partial scholarships and bursaries to help offset tuition fees and additional costs associated with participating in our core programs* in television and film each year. As an organization committed to shaping the future of Canadian storytelling, we are proud to support and advance opportunities for Canadian creators and talent. We aim to reduce barriers to access, particularly as it relates to financial circumstances, to ensure a vibrant and accessible future for anyone considering the CFC as part of their storytelling journey.

As you consider your application to the CFC, please visit this site in late November 2021 for additional details on the financial assistance available. Upon acceptance into the program, residents will be offered the opportunity to share additional context to their financial circumstances. Your financial details may be requested but will be kept in strict confidence.

*Please note that for participants accepted to the Slaight Family Music Lab, there is no tuition and you will receive a monthly bursary, thanks to a major commitment from the Slaight Family Foundation.
