Course Overview

School of Motion's mission is to break down the barriers to learning, mastering, and working in Design and Animation. We partnered with Motion Forward and created a scholarship in an effort to remove the financial wall that stands between artists and their goals. By donating courses to the organization, we are able to help raise awareness about—and provide access to—career resources for historically underrepresented groups in the motion design industry.

Apply to gain access to one of our session-based courses next session, and everything that comes with it. This scholarship provides access to educational resources for historically underrepresented groups in the motion design industry. 

Course Outcomes

What You'll Learn

What You'll Get

Cohort-Based Learning

Join artists from around the world on our custom learning platform. Never learn alone, as you’ll have immediate access to a forum of fellow students to share work, ask questions, and improve together. 

Exercises & Project Files for Every Lesson

Each course comes packed with free project files, assets, and additional material to keep you learning and growing long after the course ends. Our exercises are designed from real world briefs, so you’re learning the skills you need to excel on your next project or venture.

Technical & Creative Support Along the Way

You’ll be assigned a Teaching Assistant with years of experience in your chosen course. They’ll provide technical and creative feedback to guide you through new skills, improve your techniques, and provide encouragement along your journey. 

Verified Credential Upon Course Completion

Completing a course isn’t just about bragging rights. Once you’ve completed at least 70% of your work in a given course, you’ll earn a verified credential that can show current and future employers exactly what you’ve accomplished.

Permanent Access to Course Material

We all need a refresher now and again, which is why you’ll keep access to your course—and all the assets and project files—for the rest of your life. Come back to listen to exclusive interviews, review old lessons, and try out new techniques using your old assets.

An Expansive Alumni Community

You’ll gain instant access to our alumni platform, The Square. Here you can network with professional artists at every stage of their career. You’ll get access to new job opportunities and exclusive alumni events, such as meetups, virtual hangouts and reel reviews.

All applicants will be notified via email whether their application was accepted before the registration period closes.

Can I redo my application?

You cannot resubmit the application form. The application period will be open for 4 weeks, so please take your time to avoid any errors!

What if my application is not accepted?

This scholarship will be available four times a year! If your application is not accepted, we encourage you to apply again the following application period. You can reapply for the same course the next time and reuse your homework locker submission, or you can apply for a different course.

Who is Motion Forward and how does this partnership work?

Motion Forward is an organization dedicated to making motion design education accessible and providing career growth opportunities to marginalized groups all over the world. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship each session. Motion Forward will select the recipients each application period. Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to take a School of Motion course and Motion Forward will help provide guidance and opportunities for recipients throughout and more importantly after they've completed the course.

My scholarship application was accepted! But now I think the course I applied to is not the right fit. Can I change the course?

Unfortunately no. We have a limited number of scholarships for each course and select them all before reaching out. If you were notified your application was accepted, that means that all the course scholarships were already given out for that session. You can always apply to the course you think is a better fit the following application period!
