SCREENSKILLS BURSARY - Will reopen 1 April 2021

ScreenSkills bursaries are designed to provide financial assistance to those looking to enter, progress in, return to, or transfer into the screen industries. Our ambition is to ensure that the industry has access now, and in the future, to the skills and talent, it needs for continued success by helping to unlock opportunities across all types of screen work.

Supporting an individual with a bursary to develop their career helps the screen industries to respond to skills gaps and priority shortage areas. We welcome applications from people in groups under-represented in the industry. 

Bursaries are supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds, by industry contributions to the Film, HETV and Children’s TV Skills Funds and through money from the Television Skills Fund targeted at improving diversity and inclusivity. Deadlines and application available on
