(Editor's note: As always, we strongly encourage our Bucks graduates - and soon-to-be-graduates - to apply for scholarships. Even if you don't win, the experience you get from applying will be of huge value in helping you to polish your demo reel, improve your CV, and generally to identify where you need to improve your skills. And, of course, if you win, this could be a life-changing experience.)
