BAFTA has now opened applications for two of its scholarship programmes, today we have some information for you about these fantastic opportunities!
First the BAFTA Scholarship Programme, which assists talented UK nationals in need of financial support to study a post-graduate course in film, television or games in the UK, is now accepting applications for the forthcoming academic year. The deadline for applications is Monday 16 June.
Each BAFTA Scholar will receive up to £10,000 towards their course fees for a year, mentoring support from BAFTA members and free access to BAFTA events around the UK. For a second year, three of the chosen scholars will receive the Prince William Scholarship in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros. These scholarships are awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA. The recipients will have their fees funded by Warner Bros. and will additionally receive a short funded work placement within the Warner Bros. group of companies, access to a Warner Bros. mentor, and invitations to a series of industry masterclasses.

Second, we have opened applications for the BAFTA Yip Foundation Scholarships, which will support Hong Kong residents in need of financial assistance looking to study a postgraduate course in the UK in film, television or games.
The BAFTA Yip Foundation Scholarships will provide two permanent residents of Hong Kong with up to £20,000 towards one year’s course fees at a recognised UK institution, a £10,000 bursary for living expenses, the support of an industry mentor and free access to BAFTA events. The scholarships are part of the wider BAFTA Scholarship Programme in Hong Kong, generously supported by the Yip Foundation, which will also enable up to two UK nationals to study a postgraduate course in Hong Kong.
The BAFTA Scholarship Programme in Hong Kong is the latest addition to BAFTA’s established scholarship programmes in the UK and the US for those in need of financial assistance, and is designed to support UK-Asia cross-cultural exchange.
