The Horror Scholarship

The good folks at Star Costumes have decided to start, as far as we’re concerned, the first horror scholarship for students entering the horror industry. Now I am actually shocked and pleased to see a scholarship for horror and I guess it would make sense that a Halloween costume store would start one.

Eligibility Requirements:

Horror Scholarship candidates must meet the following criteria:

- A student with a 3.0 GPA;

- 18 years or older;

- who's currently studying full-time at a undergraduate or graduate post-secondary institution.

The student must be studying in a field designed to prepare them for work in the horror industry. This could include careers such as:

- Makeup artist

- Special effects artist

- Costume designer

- Set designer

- Lighting designer

- Film sound artist

- VFX/CGI artist

- Postproduction specialist

- Film critic

- Screenwriter

- Cinematographer

- Director
