About the Scholarships

Each BAFTA Scholar will receive 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.

For a fourth year, three students will each receive one of the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros., awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA. These 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.

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