I am incredibly excited to announce that I have been selected by BAFTA to become a Prince William Scholar supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros.! Not only will I receive financial support to complete my studies in Production Design at NFTS, I will also receive a BAFTA and Warner Bros. industry mentor as well as a Warner Bros. Placement!
It is inspiring to feel that such an esteemed organisation as BAFTA believes in and wishes to support my creative abilities. Im finding it hard to express how excited and grateful I am for this opportunity and excited to see how it will positively impact my future studies and career.
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, Television and Games, 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 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.
