The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles (BAFTA LA) is instituting a scholarship program for graduate students in the U.S., the organization announced this week.
The annual program will offer a top grant of $15,000 plus $5,000 to a runner-up and two honorable mention scholarships valued at $1,500 each. BAFTA LA is guaranteeing the program for three years, starting with the 2012 to 2013 academic year.
Applicants must be British students in a moving-image-related discipline at an accredited grad school. Application details can be found at www.baftala.org. The deadline for submissions is April 30.
The scholarships are part of BAFTA LA’s 25th anniversary celebrations. The organization functions as a bridge between the Hollywood and British entertainment communities.
