The Prince William BAFTA Bursary is a fund to help assist junior creatives with the costs of progressing their career in film, games or television.
Following a successful pilot year in 2021, the 2022 bursary fund allowed applicants to apply for up to £2,000 towards specific costs such as a training course (including driving lessons), the costs of equipment or software, or relocation costs.
“I am hugely proud of BAFTA’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that young talent from all walks of life are given every possible opportunity to build and develop successful careers in the film, games and television industries”. HRH Prince of Wales, President of BAFTA.
