Paying tribute to the director's heritage and social awareness of films such as Tigerland, Falling Down, Car Wash, and St. Elmo & # 39; s Fire will be a scholarship that will allow four students to participate in the Gotham EDU's summer eight-week curriculum, which offers professional development and technical skills improvement workshops, masterclasses hosted by industry decision makers, and mentor insights in one-on-one sessions on a full scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to individuals and communities that Joel has identified through his work and life: LGBTQ + and / or black, indigenous and people of color. "
