The Film- und Medienstiftung NRW has regularly invited applications for scholarships to develop web videos since 2014 – initially together with the European Web Video Academy in the first two years, then within the framework of the NRW Creators LAB, an initiative of the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and UFA LAB, from 2017, within the framework of the Creator College NRW (CCNRW) in 2020

2021 will also see the first Call for Participation for the scholarship be organised with the CCNRW.

As of now, web video talents can apply for the second edition of the Creator College NRW. Nine NRW-based creators or creator teams are supported by CCNRW with a boot camp, several advanced seminars, and a grant of 6,000 Euros per project from the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW.
