Cinema Makeup School recognizes that for some otherwise deserving young artists, cost can be a barrier to attending makeup classes. That is why CMS is a pioneer in offering these deserving artists opportunities to study through various scholarship programs.

  • Brand Ambassador Scholarship

    The Brand Ambassador Scholarship is awarded multiple times a year by partnering with popular cosmetic brands. The scholarship amount varies and is awarded based on artistic talent, social engagement, character, and a personal statement.

  • Legends of Creature Design Scholarship

    When it was conceived, The Legends of Creature Design Scholarship was given in partnership with legendary, 7-time Oscar-winning makeup and effects artist, Rick Baker, who personally selected one winner to receive a ten thousand dollar scholarship in tuition credit. This year, the torch has been passed to fellow Academy Award-winning makeup artists, Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero, over at KNB EFX Group!

  • Ve Neill Legends of Makeup Scholarship

    The Ve Neill Legends of Makeup Scholarship offers one deserving artist a $10,000 award for tuition at CMS. This scholarship is chosen in conjunction with three-time Oscar®-winning makeup artist and star judge of SyFy’s Face Off Ve Neill, who personally oversees the selections process.

  • Next Level of Cosplay Scholarship

    The Next Level of Cosplay Scholarship is an annual scholarship contest judged by award winning Hollywood makeup artists and cosplay specialists that awards a full ride scholarship for the Master Makeup Program to entrants from the cosplay community and beyond with demonstrated talent and an interest in becoming professional makeup artists.
