The Royal Television Society is keen to encourage the most talented Engineering, Computer Sciences, Physics and Maths undergraduates to consider a career in television. Competition to recruit highly skilled graduates in these fields is strong, and many may be unaware of the career opportunities that television and media industries have to offer.
Successful applicants receive financial support as well as the chance to gain an insight into career opportunities in television and related industries. They will also be provided with RTS membership throughout the duration of study, plus one further year of membership after graduation.
Applications for the Technology Bursary are open to new or first year students, studying one of the subjects above and are considered for the following:
Academic achievement and ability to study - We want to hear about the ways in which applicants have demonstrated their academic ability and commitment to study.
Interest in television - We want to know whether applicants have considered a future career in television and what attracted them to this scheme.
Motivation - We want to support individuals who will make the most of the opportunities presented by this bursary and are keen to be active members of the RTS.
The RTS Bursary Scheme submission window is now closed for 2021 and will re-open in February 2022.
