Empowering Dreams: Support Mariam's Education

Donation protected
This is Mariam, A 24 years old girl, who after 10 years of unwavering determination and hard work, she finally earned acceptance into one of the world's best institutes, New York Film Academy. Her lifelong dream is about to come true with your support.

Her goal is to pursue a Master's in Filmmaking at New York Film Academy. Imagine a day when someone, fueled by an unwavering dream of becoming a filmmaker, finally steps onto the hallowed sets of renowned studios like Universal Pictures, feeling the very pulse of filmmaking. This is more than just a dream; it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support and uplift this passionate individual in her pursuit.

Support with financial resources:

Despite her hard work, she has managed to save enough to cover her travel expenses and some living costs. However, she still requires support for tuition fees in California, where the NYFA master's degree program is located. Here's a brief summary of the expenses she'll need to manage during her Master’s studies:

Per semester - 15,717 USD
Equipment & Technology Fee - 1,693 USD per semester
Total for 6 semesters for Master's degree - 104,460 USD

She has been fortunate to receive a need-based scholarship of 12,000 USD and a Talent award of 12,000 USD, covering 20% of her tuition fee. With your help, she aims to bridge this financial gap and pursue her dreams.

Your support is pivotal to her career, and she can't express enough gratitude, except through her films.

$100: Special Thank You in the end credits of all four short films she'll produce during her time at the NFTS and the final work.
$500: Special Thank You in the end credits of all short films produced at the NFTS & a credit in her debut feature film.

This GoFundMe is set up to go directly to New York Film Academy for Mariam’s tuition fee. I am Armine Soghoyan, Mariam’s elder sister.
