30 June deadline for applications for RTS bursaries

The Royal Television Society wants to help talented young people from lower income backgrounds to realise their potential and get a foothold in the television industry. They award 20 bursaries each year to students who have a place to study on our Journalism undergraduate course. To be eligible for a bursary, your household income must be less than £25,000 a year. The bursaries are to support living expenses and will be paid in instalments of £1,000 a year for the duration of the course.

The Steve Hewlett Award is also open to applicants interested in a career in current affairs journalism /documentary production. An Additional £1000 per annum will be awarded to two successful applicants. If you wish to be considered for this award please tick the relevant box on the application form, read the information about Steve Hewlett below and say why you should receive the award in your supporting paragraph.
