ScreenSkills bursaries: apply for funding to progress your career
A ScreenSkills bursary is a cash grant to remove the obstacles to getting into the screen industries or progressing your career once you’re in. You can apply for money to pay for most things that relate to work and continuing professional development, such as training fees, accommodation, care, disability access costs, equipment, software and travel. Read the bursary guidelines to understand exactly what's covered.
Bursaries are supported by the BFI, awarding National Lottery funds, by industry contributions to the Animation, Children’s TV, Film, High-end TV and Unscripted Skills Funds.
We aim to offer funding wherever possible, but we cannot promise that all applications will be successful.
