We are proud to announce that Jam Filled Entertainment, a Boat Rocker company, has launched a new scholarship program focused on attracting students from diverse backgrounds to the animation industry. The Jam Filled Diversity in Animation (JFDIA) scholarship program will provide financial support and mentorship opportunities to promising second year animation program students.

Four individual scholarships will be available to students who identify as diverse and are entering the second year of an animation program at Algonquin College, Sheridan College, Seneca College, or Nova Scotia Community College. Each scholarship is valued at $3,000 CAD per academic year and is renewable until the bachelor's degree or diploma is obtained.

“We’re thrilled to launch the Jam Filled Diversity in Animation scholarship program to help the next generation of animators thrive,” said Kyle MacDougall, Phil Lafrance, and Jamie Leclaire, founders of Jam Filled Entertainment. “It’s vital that there is more diversity in the animation industry, and we look forward to supporting these talented animators pursue their studies in the craft we all love.”
