An entertainment company has partnered with Capilano University to create a new entrance scholarship which will help students pursuing careers in B.C.’s creative industries.
Capilano University has announced the creation of a new $30,000-grant from Atomic Cartoons to support students looking to access the post-secondary institution’s 2D and 3D animation programs.
“This is a very meaningful contribution from Atomic – it underscores their position as an industry leader in animated content production, workplace culture, and their commitment to our community,” stated Ted Gervan, dean of Fine and Applied Arts at Capilano University, in a press release.
Starting this year, Canadian high school students can apply for the new Atomic Cartoons Entrance Scholarship, which will award two incoming students $5,000 each year.
Atomic Cartoons is part of the kids and family division of Thunderbird Entertainment Group, which creates animated programming all over the world.
