The Carson Cummings Film Scholarship was established in 2013 to honor the memory of Carson Ross Cummings of Austin, Texas. Each year, we award three college scholarships to local graduating high school seniors through a short film competition. Our incredibly talented scholarship recipients have shown a passion for filmmaking similar to Carson's own. Since 2013, the Carson Cummings Film Scholarship Committee has awarded over $60,000.00 in college scholarships to aspiring high school filmmakers in Austin, Texas. From 2013 - 2016, the scholarship was available only to graduating seniors of Anderson High School - Carson’s alma mater. In 2017, the scholarship broadened its outreach to include additional high schools in Austin. In 2018, the Carson Cummings Scholarship Committee welcomes the addition of Film Producers Josh Crook and Ron Perlman from Wing and A Prayer Pictures - providing an unparalleled platform for our students to showcase their filmmaking prowess to industry professionals.
