Educational Scholarships

Overview:

Individuals who require a discount in order to take our classes should complete the educational scholarship application.  Scholarships allow students to take our classes for a reduced fee of $25 (a discount of up to 90% off the full price).


History:

Since 2007, the Open Media Foundation has awarded over 500 scholarships to provide more access to education and resources to those in need in our community.  These scholarships have resulted in an increase in equipment/resource certification and increased diversity in programming for Denver Open Media.


Eligibility Requirements:

  • The only requirement for scholarship eligibility is a demonstration of financial need or low-income status.
  • Individuals with a commitment to use the training to produce content for DOM and other community media outlets are preferred.
  • When multiple applications exist for limited scholarship spots, preference for educational scholarships is given to Denver Open Media members.
  • No more than 25% of a class can be made up of scholarship recipients.
  • Non-members can receive no more than one (1) scholarship.
  • Denver Open Media members can receive no more than three (3) scholarships.

Full Scholarships:

Thanks to funding from the Ed Limato Foundation, The Denver Foundation, PB & K Family Foundation and other donors, we are offering a limited number of full scholarships for individuals who identify themselves as Hispanic, Latino/Latina, GLBT, youth, or as having no post-secondary education. Please check the appropriate checkbox on the application to take advantage of this offer.
