Scholarships: Programs for Schools, Educators and Community Organizations

The JBFC will waive the participation fee and reimburse all transportation costs for schools in which a minimum of 35% of students qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch through the National School Lunch Program (according to the New York State Department of Education). We make the same accommodations for community groups serving under-resourced and at-risk youth. We encourage all organizations, regardless of financial circumstances, to participate in our programs and we will do our best to meet your needs. For more information, please contact the education assistant at education@burnsfilmcenter.org or 914.773.7663, ext. 423.
