We are pleased to announce that The Leverhulme Trust has awarded The London Film School a grant for Leverhulme Arts Scholarships. These awards will be available for the terms starting in September 2016.
The Leverhulme Trust was established in 1925 under the Will of the First Viscount Leverhulme with the instruction that its resources should be used to support “scholarships for the purposes of research and education.” Since that time, the Trust has provided funding for research projects, fellowships, studentships, bursaries and prizes; it operates across all the academic disciplines, the ambition being to support talented individuals as they realise their personal vision in research and professional training. With annual funding of some £60 million, the Trust is amongst the largest all-subject providers of research funding in the UK.
The Leverhulme Trust is funding LFS to provide a limited number of scholarships to people wishing to apply for the MA Filmmaking & MA Screenwriting courses starting in September 2016 and for continuing students in the second year of the course with exceptional talent, facing changing political/personal circumstances who would not otherwise be able to complete their studies without financial assistance.
The Scholarship Fund will provide support for 4 applicants, two from each MA course, and is managed by the London Film School Bursary Fund Panel; the Panel decides on both types of awards based on the quality of the original application, progress to date, and financial need.
