Prince William Scholarships at BAFTA - financial support for your master's degree!
BAFTA has just announced three annual Prince William Scholarships (applications for which opened yesterday) which are intended to assist talented arts and media students in need of financial support.
The scholarships are for study at a post-graduate course in film, TV and games. Successful applicants will each receive up to £10,000 to cover their course fees and receive mentoring support, free access to BAFTA events around the UK, and a funded work placement within the Warner Bros. group of companies.
This partnership between BAFTA and Warner Bros. is all about investing in future talent. According to BAFTA, the Prince William Scholarships form "a key part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent, a multi-layered nationwide investment programme in skills and training for the UK’s creative industries".
Applications for the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros., are now being accepted here: BAFTA Scholarships Application.
The deadline is Monday 17 June 2013.
It goes without saying that any Bucks student who wants to go on to further study in one of the creative industries should go ahead and apply. Even if you don't win, the discipline imposed by making these sorts of applications is a useful skill in itself, and will help prepare you for other scholarships in the future.
