The purpose of the Foreign Student Academy Awards competition is to support and encourage filmmakers with no previous professional experience who are enrolled in CILECT-affiliated colleges and universities outside the borders of the United States. While professional advice may be requested and given in the making of student films, the Academy believes that professional camera persons, directors, editors and writers should not play any major role in the production of such films. The Academy reserves the right to disqualify from competition any film in which such professionals have had undue influence.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medal Awards (which include cash grants of $5000, $3000 and $2000, respectively) may be given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in recognition of outstanding achievements in student filmmaking in the Foreign Film category.
