Student member and young member bursaries

Applications are now open for Equity’s Student Member and Young Member Bursaries.

Equity’s Student Member and Young Member Bursary Scheme is funded by donations from Equity Life Members, demonstrating their solidarity with younger members of the creative workforce entering the entertainment industry. The bursaries assist Student Members and Young Members with the costs of beginning a career in the entertainment sector. Each year, bursaries of £500 each will be awarded to two Equity Student Members in their final year of study on a course of one year or longer, and two Graduate or Full Members of Equity who are aged 18-30.

Receiving the Equity Student Member Bursary meant that I was able to do things that previously wouldn’t have even been in my scope. This industry is unfortunately a pricey one to get into and this bursary provided me with a means to create at least a start, that I wouldn’t have been able to do without. I am very thankful for what I have been able to do with the bursary’s help.

How to Apply

To apply, please fill in the following form no later than 12pm on Monday 31st July 2023. The Bursary winners will be selected at random from all eligible applicants for the relevant award.  You will be notified about the outcome of your application no later than Monday 14th August 2023.
