The American Film Institute, USC, UCLA, NYU and Columbia were among the schools that will be represented at the 2012 Student Academy Awards ceremony on June 9.
Those schools were home to some of the 10 students who were named winners of this year's Student Oscars, which the Academy announced on Tuesday.
Winners were announced in the alternative, animation, documentary and narrative categories, with half the winners coming from Southern California film schools: two from AFI, the only school to have more than one winner, and one each from USC, UCLA and CalArts.
Other schools with winners included NYU, Columbia, Ringling College of Art and Design, American University and, for the first time, Art Institute of Jacksonville.
Although voters can choose up to two films in the alternative category, they opted for a single winner, "The Reality Clock"...
