Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Charitable Trust (HFPA Trust) provides post-production awards for students in the Graduate Film program in support of their thesis films, as well as stipends for students in the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation graduate program participating in industry-related internships.

“Grants from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association allow our students to pursue internships that are springboards to careers in film preservation and moving image archiving. Students get rich experience in preserving and curating audiovisual materials in exciting professional settings, including the Museum of Modern Art, Anthology Film Archives, and the New York Public Library.”

Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Charitable Trust (HFPA Trust) provides post-production awards for students in the Graduate Film program in support of their thesis films, as well as stipends for students in the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation graduate program participating in industry-related internships.

The HFPA Trust was established to provide financial support for educational and cultural non-profit organizations whose primary focus is the entertainment industry. The HFPA Trust is the philanthropic arm of the HFPA. Funding for HFPA Fellowships and Grants is derived from HFPA’s income from the Golden Globe Awards.

Throughout the HFPA’s history, the majority of the organization’s funding has been dedicated to advancing and preserving the culture and art of motion pictures. Funding is principally directed to the following goals:

Nurture the development of young artists in film and television through support for:

  • scholarship, fellowships, and other support to film schools in the United States

  • pre-professional education and training programs for talented young artists from diverse backgrounds

  • high-caliber professional training and mentoring that successfully advance the projects, skills, and industry relationships of outstanding new filmmakers worldwide

Preserve the culture and history of motion pictures by supporting:

  • film preservation and archival programs with national significance

  • major film retrospectives that showcase master works and prominent filmmakers of world cinema to advance knowledge and appreciation among diverse audiences

  • projects that protect Hollywood’s rich motion picture history and recreate the early moviegoing experience for audiences

Promote cultural exchange and understanding through support for major programs and exhibitions that utilize film to ignite critical dialogue and promote global understanding.

Support special projects, education, and cultural activities connected with the entertainment industry.

In 2013, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association also established the endowed HFPA Scholarship in support of talented students in need of financial support.
