This bursary is for students from low-income households studying subjects including but not limited to: TV Production, Journalism, Film, Humanities and Social Sciences. What is important is an evident interest in wanting to pursue a career in the screen industries. It is open to new and first-year students and provides financial support, mentoring, free RTS membership and events access.

If you are interested in current affairs journalism or documentary production, your application can be considered for a Steve Hewlett Scholarship, supported by Steve’s colleagues, broadcasting organisations, family and friends through the Steve Hewlett Memorial Fund. The award aims to commemorate Steve’s extensive and ground-breaking work in this field.

Aspiring producers can be considered for the Beryl Vertue Scholarship and will receive additional support and funding from Hartswood Films, the company run by the daughters of the late Beryl Vertue. This scholarship is designed to honour and commemorate Vertue’s illustrious television career.

STV will also support up to 5 Television Production and Journalism bursaries a year, providing financial support, work experience and an STV mentor. 

Please refer to our Guide to applying for a Bursary for eligibility criteria, and our Bursary Terms and Conditions for further information.
