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 up to £12,000 towards their annual course fees (up to a maximum of £20,000 across 2 years). BAFTA will make a contribution towards living expenses for undergraduate courses, but if the course is three or four years long, only those going into their 2nd, 3rd or 4th 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. 

Applications are now closed and will open again in Spring 2025

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.
