Congratulations to the 2012 Altman Education Grant winners!
A representative from KC Sourcelink and FastTrac NewVenture will be in contact soon to give you more information about the classes.
The deadline for applications was 5pm CST, Friday, June 1, 2012. The application process is now closed. For more information, please contact Justin Gardner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goal of these grants is to give filmmakers business knowledge they can use to help turn their craft into a business venture, turn an existing project into a more fruitful venture or both. If you do apply for a grant, please have a business or project idea ready to bring to the classes. The 5 full-day classes start July 13, 2012 and end August 10, 2012.
Kauffman’s FastTrac NewVenture program has graciously provided the $500 program fee for each of the selected grant recipients, which includes the full cost of the 5 classes. As a result of this subsidization, participants are required to attend all sessions of the workshop, barring illness or emergency.
There will be 10 grant recipients. To be eligible to apply you must live within 50 miles of the Greater Kansas City area.
Please review the following schedule to be sure that you are available for all of the sessions.
The classes will be held in 5, full-day sessions from 9AM to 5PM on consecutive Fridays starting July 13, 2012 and ending August 10, 2012.
The location will be at the UMKC Innovation Center located at 4747 Troost in room 114.
While we are no longer accepting applications, but the below will give you an idea of what materials to prepare for next year.
