UK Scholarship Programme

Our UK Scholarship Programme is part of our charitable activity to support talented people at all stages of their career in film, games and television. 

The BAFTA UK scholarship programme is open to British citizens in need of financial assistance to take a post-graduate course in the UK. Each BAFTA Scholar receives up to £12,000 towards their annual course fees, as well as mentoring support from a BAFTA member, and free access to BAFTA events around the UK. 

Three Prince William Scholarships in Film, Games and Television, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros., are awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA. These recipients fees are funded by Warner Bros. and they 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.

Scholarship recipients take part in BAFTA's outreach to young people and share their learning experiences on BAFTA Guru, BAFTA's online learning channel.

Applications for 2017/18 are now closed. Register your interest for 2018
