Each year aspiring students who reside in the Huntsville and Lake of Bays area have the opportunity to apply for scholarship support through Reel Alternatives. Although there are no set funding amounts Reel historically supported students based on need, the project they have presented, or the type of school program that they will be attending. Past winners have completed short film documentaries, and attended some of the best film and media study programs in the Province. Applications are available in late April and are available from the Huntsville High School.
