Oakville Sheridan College student Joy Zhou is a winner of a student scholarship from ASIFA-Hollywood.

Zhou is one of nine recipients from four countries awarded a scholarship for the 2021-22 academic year by the organization’s Animation Educators Forum (AEF).

The scholarships, totaling $39,730, will be distributed to the nine students and used to help cover costs of software, hardware, creative and academic research and tuition.

Zhou, a third year, undergraduate, includes story and character design as goals.

The AEF scholarships are merit-based and designed to support college students continue their education in the field of animation. Each individual student’s written proposals, letters of recommendation from faculty, and demo reel/still art were taken into consideration as part of the selection process.

The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood is a California non-profit organization established over 35 years ago to promote and encourage the art and craft of animation.
