About The Television Academy Foundation

Established in 1959 as the charitable arm of the Television Academy, the Television Academy Foundation was created to engage and educate the next generation of the television industry. The Foundation has helped thousands of talented students find their voices, refine their skills and forge rewarding careers in every area of the television industry. They include prominent writers, producers, documentarians, creative executives, network presidents and more. Understanding the critical role of both educators and students, the Television Academy Foundation nurtures future leaders and storytellers by providing opportunities through our prominent programs:


Today the Foundation garners additional support from philanthropists and sponsors within and outside the television industry. All with the common underdstanding that investing in today's educators and students is a direct investment in tomorrow's industry leaders. With the rapid convergence of media today, it's increasingly necessary to examine and discuss implications to the industry in order to better understand the future of television. Thus, the best way to prepare for television's future is to get involve and help shape it.
