Santa Fe-based author George R.R. Martin continues to give back to his New Mexico community. Through his Literary Fund, The “Game of Thrones” guru recently established one $15,000 and two $5,000 scholarships for students seeking a BFA in Cinematic Arts and Technology at the Institute of American Indian Arts. One of the scholarships, a $5,000 award for incoming freshmen or transfer students, has had its deadline extended to June 1, 2019 at 8am. To qualify the student must demonstrate “a passion for storytelling.” In addition to completing an online scholarship application, the student needs to submit a story sample (or script) and bio. For more information on who is eligible and how to apply, go to iaia.edu/newcomer. The GRRM Literary Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee will complete their selections, and the recipients of all three scholarships will be announced at the IAIA Annual Scholarship Dinner and Auction on Aug. 14 at the La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe.
