Community Inclusion Scholarship

School of Motion's mission is to break down the barriers to learning, mastering and working in Motion Design. The purpose of the Community Inclusion Scholarship is to help underrepresented and historically oppressed groups in the industry overcome this barrier. 

Recipients of the Community Inclusion Scholarship for Fall 2020 will receive a 100% off enrollment voucher for one School of Motion course, including unlimited critiques from a Teaching Assistant, and access to the School of Motion alumni network.

We realize the cost of courses is just one of the many barriers to entry. This is a program that we are continuing to evolve as we find a sustainable way to help grow the community. We remain committed to our mission as we continue to work towards finding and providing more solutions. 

Course Information:

  • Sessions are between 8-12 weeks long, depending on the course
  • You can follow along at your own pace but we suggest a time commitment of 15-20 hours per week
  • You will be assigned a professional motion designer as a Teaching Assistant who will give you feedback on your assignments
  • Once the course is completed, you will have unlimited access to the course material
  • Once you have completed the course, you will gain access to our Alumni Network

The support of the main tutor along with a talented artist as a teacher assistant kept me on track, with practical exercises and podcasts relevant to the classes. It makes me never want to leave the SOM platform."  - Samuel Parra Pulido, Explainer Camp

Even though I was quite overwhelmed by how experienced and talented my other classmates are, it is ok for a totally beginner to catch the schedule by Sarah Beth's teaching. So I totally loved this course!" - Peng Hsiang Fang, Illustration For Motion

Daniele Longo Spring 2020"I enjoyed so much learning from Nol, I have played with AE before, but only with templates. I’m now confident to create my own pieces, the course structure and the TA's definitely are essential to learning the right tools at the right time."  - Daniele Longo, After Effects Kickstart
