What the Scholarship Offers

The Richard Attenborough Scholarship was established in tribute to Lord Attenborough who was vice patron of the CTBF, now The Film & Television Charity.

Through his career Lord Attenborough dedicated his efforts to developing new talent in the Film industry and the scholarship continues the work he became known for and was passionate about in the industry.

It is designed to help towards tuition fees for students who want to attend the National Film and Television School (NFTS).

Each year, we support two students with a scholarship award to study for an MA at the world-renowned National Film and Television School.

Through the scholarship, we’re helping support the next generation of screen craft professionals as they embark on the early stages of their career. And that could be you.
