The 2019 bursary scheme opened today for application until 30th June 2019, and for the first time not only will applications be open to individuals starting their course of study in 2019, but also to students who began their degree in 2018.

The number of bursaries offered for 2019 will increase substantially with STV funding 10 additional bursaries each year for students studying in Scotland.  

RTS bursary students: What happened next?

Florence Watson

I started at Norwich University of the Arts in 2014, after being out of education for several years. I was battling with mental-health issues and felt unsure about which direction I wanted to steer my life.

Screenwriting had always been a secret passion, so I picked a course that would allow me to bring my characters to life. I applied to the RTS Bursary on a whim. I am so thankful that I did.

Applications are now open for the Royal Television Society's undergraduate bursary schemes.

The Society is investing £·5,000 in 25 bursaries to encourage talented students to consider a career in television.

A new technology fund has been launched this year to support five students studying Computing or Engineering who may not have considered working in broadcasting.
