Scholarships Available For MA Screenwriting and MA Filmmaking Degrees

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 2019.  

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.

There are Leverhulme Arts Awards available for FULL FUNDING for 2 UK/EU/EEA applicants, one from each MA course, and is managed by the London Film School Bursary and Student Funding Committee. The committee decides on awards based on the quality of the application and financial need. 

To apply, you must be granted and accept an unconditional offer upon application to the School. To register your interest, please tick so on your application form.

With grateful thanks from the Leverhulme Trust for this most generous award.
