Mo Gilligan explains why you should apply for the RTS Bursary Scheme.
The RTS Bursary Scheme is now closed and will re-open in 2024.
The RTS wants television to reflect the exciting, diverse and talented voices of the Britain of today, and that starts by changing the industry from the inside out. We offer three core schemes – the TV Production and Journalism Bursary, the Digital Innovation Bursary and the Steve Hewlett Scholarship. And in 2022, we introduced the Beryl Vertue Scholarship to support an applicant with an interest in producing.
All Bursaries are awarded to students from lower-income backgrounds studying an undergraduate degree or HND Level 5 or 6. Applicants must have at least 2 years left of study from autumn 2023. We consider students of all subjects, including but not limited to: TV Production and Journalism; Humanities and Social Sciences; and STEM related courses. All we ask is that you’re passionate about TV!
