THE HEIDI KARRIKER SCHOLARSHIP
Jeanne Hoffman Smith has established a yearly FVS scholarship of $1000.00 named for Dr. Heidi Karriker.

In the past winners have used this scholarship for professional workshops, technical training classes and to provide financial support during unpaid internships.

Mrs. Smith created this scholarship in Dr. Karriker’s name to honor the years of dedicated work she has given to the development of the FVS Program at OU. Dr. Joanna Rapf has described the significant contributions Dr. Karriker has made over the years “Heidi Karriker has been an invaluable and active colleague, a dedicated teacher, and an inspiration for those of us involved in film studies.”
This award is open to FVS juniors and seniors who have a 3.5 GPA or better in the FVS major and at least a 3.2 GPA Overall. Application forms and submission guidelines are in the FVS office.

THE NED HOCKMAN FILMMAKING AWARD

This award will be given to an OU student to help complete a film or video project. This project must be substantially underway and preference will be given for postproduction and/or exhibition expenses.

The Ned Hockman Award was established in 2001 in celebration of the man who put filmmaking on the map at the University of Oklahoma. His career at OU spaned forty-two years – from 1945, when he persuaded President Cross to set up a training program in the little known-technology of television – to his retirement in 1987 as a distinguished David Ross Boyd Professor of Journalism.
Any full time OU undergraduate or graduate student with a film or video project may apply. Students should submit a two page description of the project explaining how it came about, outlining the work up to the point of application, and what the student hopes to do with the completed project. A separate page should list the budget already spent and funds needed. A production reel of the work must also be submitted. A letter of recommendation from a sponsoring professor or organization must accompany applications.

Deadline: Friday, April 15, 2011, 5:00 p.m.
