UK Scholarship Programme

The BAFTA UK scholarship programme is open to British citizens in need of financial assistance to study eligible undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the UK. BAFTA Scholars undertaking postgraduate study receive between £5,000 to £12,000 towards their annual course fees (up to a maximum of £20,000 for 2 year courses). BAFTA will make a contribution towards living expenses for undergraduate courses, but if the course is three years long, only those going into their 2nd or 3rd year of study are eligible to apply. As well as financial assistance, BAFTA scholars also receive mentoring support and free access to BAFTA events around the UK. 

Generously supported by the Kirsh Foundation, the Reuben Foundation and WarnerMedia.

Applications are now closed.

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

Please note that the course you are applying for must be on the eligible courses list. If you have any questions about the BAFTA Scholarship Programme please take a look at frequently asked questions or contact [email protected]
