The Prince William BAFTA Bursary is a fund to help assist junior creatives with the costs of progressing their career in film, games or television.
Following a successful pilot year in 2021, the 2022 bursary fund allowed applicants to apply for up to £2,000 towards specific costs such as a training course (including driving lessons), the costs of equipment or software, or relocation costs.
