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.

Our MA Filmmaking and MA Screenwriting courses are on the list of Eligible Courses, see their FAQs for any questions you may have.

The BAFTA UK scholarship programme is open to British citizens in need of financial assistance to take a post-graduate course in the UK. 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. 

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