If you have a high school senior interested in animation, applying for the Warner Bros. Animation/Hanna-Barbera Reach Honorship is the way to go. Think of an honorship as a blend of an internship and renewable scholarship.
Applications must be completed online by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Short-listed applicants will be asked to complete a brief interview prior to the final decision. The winners will be notified in April. For more information, please e-mail Reach@WarnerBros.com.
The honorship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior enrolling in a four year college or university to study animation. Each cash scholarship will be for $5,000, disbursed annually in equal amounts of $1,250 over four years. Applicants must have (1) a passion for a career in animation; (2) impressive drawing, sketching and/or animation skills; (3) effective verbal and written communication skills; and (3) a minimum GPA of 3.0 upon graduation. The funds may only be used toward the tuition and related expenses of an accredited four-year college or university. Disbursement of funds will be made directly to the school once the Honorship winner is enrolled and annually thereafter for three years, provided a GPA of 3.0 is maintained.
In addition, the winner will have the opportunity to receive four (4) consecutive, paid summer internships at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank while in college,beginning with the summer immediately following high school graduation. The Honorship recipient will be contacted by Warner Bros. each spring to determine which department or area of the Studio would most suit him/her during the upcoming summer.
